Hello All,

 

I have transplanted a 3 month old papaya seedling that I have grown from seed. It is dwarf variety. I hope to update the progress in this thread once a month. Here's the link to the photos so far.

It should unless it turns out to be a male plant.

Hi Srikanth ,Please alternatively produce 3 or 4 saplings because we can identify if it is male or female only after flowering .1 male is sufficient for 4 females for pollination.Thanks.

Hi Raghu,

 

I have been growing Papaya for 4 years now. So far I never had even one plant that did not bear fruits. I currently have three papaya plants (all of which are suffering from Leaf Curl Virus) and they all are bearing fruits. I am told by the nursery guy that it is very rare that one gets a male plant. I am talking about the Taiwan variety of papaya saplings sold in Hyderabad.

 

Coming to the current papaya plant, each seed cost me around Rs. 200. Of the two that I have planted only one germinated (soaked overnight in Potassium Nitrate). I am left with just 3 seeds of which already 1 seems to be a dud. As my existing Papaya plants are suffering from Virus I cannot place the new ones anywhere close them. Hence I had to place the new one the terrace. I do not have enough seeds and enough containers to hold 3 to 4 papaya plants. I was thinking in case this one turns out to be male, then I will plant the next seed but now I might plant the seed this weekend and in three months it will be ready for transplanting by then I will know if the first papaya plant is a male or not.

Rs200 for one payapa seed Surprised ? Must be really exotic variety. Is the normal papaya growable on the terrace?. Any idea how deep and how wide do the roots grow for a full papaya tree?

I generally have 1 or 2 papaya plants growing at a time. So far all of them had bear fruits. I guess most of the papaya saplings we buy at nurseries do bear fruits.
