Common color & season
DescriptionOriginating in south America, this evergreen tree, bearing the papaya fruit, grows to a height of up to 8 meters . The large multi lobed leaves up to 60 cm across are to be found at the top of the non-branched trunk where the delicious fruits grow throughout the year just under the crown of the leaves. Not very long lived perhaps up to 15 years the papaya tree requires full sun, but appreciates light shade in gulf regions, obtained from nearby palm trees, which also provide the necessary protection against wind. Trees will grow in most soils, but they must be well drained and irrigation should be regular. Propagated by seeds, they suffer from mealybugs and scale insects. C. Papaya is useful as a specimen tree in a garden, but does not have any real landscape value
