Easy to maintain and quicker fruit production time. Taste is great. I will have to protect it in winter though. I'm going to rig appropriately rated heat lamp in my garage inside a protected cocoon to keep it warm and cozy during the freezing nights and frosty early mornings. Might even cover the trunk with foam for extra protection. Anyway plenty of time to enjoy the long growing season ahead. Will update after next years' winter.

Update 14 May 2018 The nights and early mornings are becoming colder now (3C) here in Inland NSW. I have moved my dwarf papaya indoors in a sunny north facing spare room with grow light to match. It is currently flowering. Let see if it will bear fruit during the colder months. Will update again during spring or summer.
