How much longer before you can enjoy them?

Not sure. I hope in March sometime. Papaya fruit can take from 3 - 6 months to ripen.

They will be very sweet and tasty, once they ripen. :>)

You can also see all Maradol papayas in the background.

is it a "formosa" papaya?

or a "papaia"

you can see the difference, the formosa fruit is more rounded and grows bigger... the papaia has more slim and longer fruits...and its enzymatic concentration is different

the formosa is sweeter and the "papaia" is more sour

your looks similar to the "formosa" type

Aleyna:

Thai dwarf is a common variety here. The fruits are huge and the plant actually is pretty large for a dwarf. It could be a "Formosa type"...I'm not sure of it's origins.
