Thai Red Lady Papaya Plant or Seeds

    3 responses

Keen Gardener starts with ...
I'm trying to track down seeds or a plants of Thai Red Lady Papaya within Australia. There are some on eBay and Indian websites but I am a bit dubious about buying seeds online from an overseas country due to quarantine issues etc. Can anybody help?

Hi Keen gardener,

I have Red Lady papayas, I purchased them from Bunnings here in Perth. They seem to need a fair bit of heat to colour up properly and I honestly think they are a bit over rated.

My favourite papaya is an unknown orange variety that I bought at a market it produces a lot more fruit than my Red Lady’s and has much nicer flavour. I now propagate this one by cuttings to keep it true to type.

Thanks Danny, I might keep an eye out at Bunnings for them. Have only seen 'Red' variety in the past in Bunnings Queensland not the Thai Red Lady. I had a tree several years ago and it fruited profusely with very long large fruit - very red inside and tasted amazing. Thanks

In Thailand we eat orange papaya's called papaya Holland. (don't ask me why).

They are great, sweet, firm and no puke aftertaste or so...

It's hard to find other papaya's these days on the markets but they must be around for the somtam salad.
