Meanie:

Spring bloom usually takes about 4 months and fall bloom will take 6 months or more to ripen.

Mushybanna:

I pulled my mango tree out last year. Unfortunately, it was crowded out by other plants...and declined. It was a really the good Keitt variety too. :>(

I hope to plant a new one in full sun next year!

I love papyas, can you send one over as soon as it is ripe please.

Dottydaisy2:

Sure. :>)

You would absolutely love home-grown papayas. They taste so much better than any store-bought papaya.

Dottydaisy2:

Commercially grown papayas are picked too green...and never are able to develop the sugars needed to taste good.
Red Caribbean papayas are the only exception - usually tasting good when picked green.
