Lori,

Yes, it's very good, sweet and juicy! Home-grown papayas are the best! One can never get them to ripen well from store-bought fruit. It's because they're picked too green and will never develop the sugars. This is why most people hate papayas.

Penny,

If you come to San Diego you most certainly can have some papaya. :>))

Yes, very true, no pesticides. Typically, papayas cannot be forced to flower.

Penny,

It's very unusual to have really sweet papayas sold in the store. You're very lucky! :>)) I just ate some of my papaya this morning for breakfast. It's so sweet and juicy! Yum! I picked another very large papaya today. It should be ready to eat in 3 days or so.

Lori,

I've grown all three fruits (papaya, mango, pineapple and bananas) here. Unfortunately, my mango tree died many years ago. It was crowded out and I think I applied too much nitrogen fertilizer. I've just planted a new mango tree in the ground on March 1st.

Here's a pics of the mango sapling:
