what is a papaia fruit and how to grow it



To get fruit in the UK, you will probably need a medium-large, heated greenhouse. They grow easily from seed in warm temps, and gradually develop into a large, palm-like plant, about 1.5 to 2.5 meters tall at fruiting. You will probably want to grow at least several seedlings, since male and female flowers usually appear on separate plants, and you will need both to get fruit. Fruit appears on the sides of the trunk, just below the crown of frilly leaves.
