PAPAYA - SRI LANKAN RED
A red fleshed papaya from Sri Lanka. Produces large, sweet, elongated fruit up to 1kg with orange-red flesh. Bisexual papayas are generally self pollinating, occasional females can be expected these will fruit best if pollinated by a male but will produce seedless fruit on their own. These seedless, female fruits are not so flavoursome.
