Papaya - Southern Red

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 1204 days 21hrs

Comments: - Lovely firm red flesh fruit and doesnt seem to attract fruit bats, thank goodness as they fly through my garden and roost for a rest on our orchid tree which is about 60 years old, the papaya plant self sowed in my garden, have left it where it shot. I dont really know what type it is so just guessing it sprouted from pulp cast into the chook pen, from a fruit i bought at the supermarket.

Height 2.5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Question: I have a red fruiting self sown papaya tree of about 2.5 meters tall which has fruited well this last summer. I saw it growing in the sweet potato patch behind the chook pen and gave it some space, it has been left alone and is rarely watered, gets some runoff occasionally from watering garden beds. It seems I have some new seedlings emerging from the garden bed close by. Should i plant these near the mother tree or is there any guidleines for having more than 1 tree. I have 2.5 acres but mostly its pasture for horses.
