Hi Gerry, Just wondering if you are still growing the Broad Leaf Papaya and if you might have a few seeds to spare. Thanks, Linton
Gerry3 says... [1821 days 2hrs ago]
Hi Linton, Unfortunately I have no seed at present but the tree is still growing. It is currently in its winter -no female flower stage. Next fruit will probably be six to eight months away but feel free to ask again about then if you are still interested.

Thanks for the info. Will contact you in 6 - 8 months time to see how it's going then. Cheers! Linton

Some problems with this software. I input water weekly.

The fruit were very juicy and sweet. It's now late winter and female flowers are finally being produced again much like other male pawpaws however the flowers are close to the stem unlike fruiting flowers on male trees which are usually on long stalks.

Water given should read weekly

Picking now 07 /16. Unfortunately fruit is pale yellow and not very tasty. Maybe better when the weather heats up.
