The most widely grown of all the hybrids in Australia, fruit is oblong, is very clean, flesh is firm, and is a medium yielding tree. Hybrids are the result of crossing 2 (stable) parent lines. Hybrids are more vigorous than their parents, produce more fruit and are less susceptible to disease. All papaya are affected by climatic changes but when grown under stable conditions hybrids are very consistent in fruit shape and size.

Papaya- Yellow YD1B Hybrid

I asked for advice from panel of experts at Qld Home & Garden show about a severe case of black spot on my fully loaded tree last year -told to water in Borax around roots before next flowering season. Did it this year - no black spot. Yay!
