Carica papaya Dwarf Hybrid Collection

New for 2020!

Dwarf Papaya Collection 20 seeds

I have had some success growing Papaya Red Maradol in a heated polytunnel but I am still looking for the best variety for our non ideal UK growing conditions. For pot growing they need to be dwarf, fruit early and have some resistance to spider mite and foliage not too large. I offer you a mix of 4 seeds each of 5 dwarf varieties to try out. I am also growing all of these for trials. Red Maradol, Solo Sunrise, Tainung No 1, Linda and Red Lady. All of these are self fertile suitable for large pot culture and start fruiting in about 9 months from seed (even earlier in hotter conditions) and when around 1 metre tall.  Note: These plants will need to be kept between 15C and 30C to grow properly and the flowers will not set or will fall off outside of this temperature range.
