Louis:

This is another local (San Diego) GoY member's neighborhood friend's papaya plant. I do have papaya plants, which I've posted in the past.

How do you tell the male from female plants?

Meanie:

There's three types of papaya flowers. The male flower is usually on a long stem. The bisexual flower (which are considered perfect flowers because they produce fruit with out any pollination). The female flower are short and stout and need pollination from male flowers to produce fruit. Hope this makes sense.
