PAPAYA - RICHTER GOLD
A Yellow Dioecious variety producing yellow thick round fruit that has some degree of tolerance to Ripe fruit Rots. There are lots of local selections of the Richter Gold. They seem to perform better in the Subtropics than the Bisexual Papayas. You will need more than 1 tree to insure you have cross pollination to allow for males.
