Carica Papaya is an excellent tropical container dwarf tree for our growers up north as well as a bomb in ground tree for the food forest lovers the south.
The tree fruits at approximately 4 ft in height and is self-fertile. The fruits are orange-red, long and oblong. Many find the fruit to be very sweet and rich in Vitamin A and C.
It is recommended that you grow this plant in full sun in well-drained soil.
Since this is a dwarf, it is expected to only grow to about 6-7 feet in a container and 10-12 feet in the ground when grown in zones 9-12. Each tree is about a foot tall at shipping.
