Papaya - Sunrise Solo (Seedling)

I'm not 100% sure that this is the right variety. It was grown from a seed by my brother-in-law's father-in-law. It flowered this year but no fruit. Was hammered in winter and lost all of its leaves (which I noticed happened to all of the local pawpaws this year). Coming back now that it's summer and has branched at the crown which I am told is very rare.


2011: HATES being in a pot. I think that it dries out too quickly so I have put it in the ground to see if it perks up. Doesn't much like the cold either. I think that it's 50/50 as to whether I can save it this time.


Winter 2011: It is not doing well and I think might have to go... the middle of the trunk is fine but both ends seems to be getting skanky. Luckily I have a seedling or 2 ready and waiting to try again.


Spring 2011: The big one died. It just rotted from both ends. No idea why but I have noticed that a LOT of the pawpaws around Newcastle have died in the last 12 months. Perhaps it was too dry last year? And there was a lot of wind which I don't think they liked. I also don't think pots are the way to go with pawpaws. I don't think they like to dry out and I am sure that he hates being moved out of the pot and into the ground.


Summer 2012: The seedlings are looking lovely. I kept the biggest and shared the rest with friends. They don't seem to grow as quickly as the  Aussie Reds that John gave me but they have ALL loved the raining summer.

Comments: - Very fast growing, tropical looking.  I have most of my paw paws growing on the east side of my house to protect them from the cold westerly winds that prevail here in Wollongong - seems to help.  Fruits taste way better than anything from the supermarket!  This is what paw paw is meant to be like :)
