Description

Papaya Selection – 1 : 

Papayas are spherical or pear-shaped fruits that can be as long as 20 inches. The ones commonly found in the market usually average about 7 inches and weigh about one pound. Their flesh is a rich orange color with either yellow or pink hues. Inside the inner cavity of the fruit are black, round seeds encased in a gelatinous-like substance. Papaya’s seeds are edible, although their peppery flavor is somewhat bitter. The fruit, as well as the other parts of the papaya tree, contain papain, an enzyme that helps digest proteins. This enzyme is especially concentrated in the fruit when it is unripe.

Soil requirements

  • They can grow in most kinds of soil, but it must be well drained.
  • The roots can get diseases if the soil stays too wet.
  • Loamy soils are best.

Spacing

Plant papayas 1,5 metres between plants and
3 to 4 metres between rows.
