A tropical evergreen plant from South America that produces fruit one year after planting! Our varieties are all hermaphroditic and therefore do not need a separate plant to pollinate and produce fruit. Most are dwarf or semi-dwarf plants to a height of 10′. Papaya fruit is an excellent source of valuable health giving nutrients as well as generous amounts of digestive enzymes.
