Papaya (Bi-sexual Paw Paw)
Papaya (Bi-sexual Paw Paw)

  • Price: $15.00

Papaya grows well on many types of soil, but they must be adequately drained. Restricted soil drainage promotes root diseases. Soil pH near neutral (pH 6.0 to 7.0) is preferred. They are very frost intolerant. They like warm protected areas. They do well with lots of mulch and rich soil. One way to enhance their growth is to add mulch regularly.

Comments Warnings : The leaves have been traditionally used to treat conditions like malaria and are made into a tea. The plant is being researched to establish its many medicinal uses. The paw paw is sought after for its fruit which is mostly eaten fresh. The unripe green fruit can be eaten cooked and is often used in curries, salads and stews.
