Papayuelo

    17 responses

Ju starts with ...
I wondered if anyone knows where one can get seeds, seedlings or plants of the "Papayuelo" (Carica goudotiana)

A papaya relative native to the Andes mountains. The 6-8" yellow-orange fruits have a nice flavor resembling an apple. I used to get them In Colombia and they are yummy peeled cut into slices, then simmered in water and sugar served cold (stewed fruit) I'd like to try growing a couple here in Kingaroy Qld.

This is my first crop of papayuelo. I have two female trees, one produces smooth yellow tear drop shaped fruits and the other has larger, more angular fruits with an orange blush. They taste a little like white sapote, with a hint of pawpaw, banana tropicana. I suspect pawpaw lovers may be disappointed due to the small size of the fruit.

Hi Kath

Your papayuelo plants, how tall do these plants get ?

And the size of the fruit, are they as small as a regular mango's size at least ? or a lot smaller ?

I don't know how they taste like, but is papayuelo worthwhile growing when you live in an area where papaya can be grown?
And do they stand Brisbane climate?
This would be a nice addition as I guess that it can be crammed in any corner like papaya.

Healthy young crop of papayuelo seedlings. No sign of germination until I added some bottom heat, then a massive emergence within a few days. Inedible when first picked, they soften to the most intense Granny Smith apple flavour over the next few days, just wish there was more flesh on them.

Someone was really kind and sent me some papayuelo seeds last year. I followed instructions but none of them sprouted. I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips on sprouting the seeds - I usually don't have any problems with normal pawpaw seeds but these maybe different. Just wondering if anyone has any seeds available - I'd like to give it another try this season if I can!

Many thanks
Kaz

Phil I just noticed that many people on Daley's forum are interested in milk kefir and culturing. If ever you're interested in any cultures I have many rare and unique ones. I can give you a list if you email me. I would love to be able to repay the favor for the seeds/plants.
