I don't even remember planting papaya trees but a few of them grew - lean, spindly fellows with no sign of any fertility. I thought they were all male until the other day when I went to pluck mangoes from the terrace and found a few fruit on one papaya tree - the biggest one.
|Home grown papayas - after the mangoes!|
And when Rajesh bought a couple I was impressed. But when they turned a beautiful golden brown I was thrilled.ow abundant is nature I wondered - it just gives these perfect fruit away for free.
Tomorrow I plan to cut one of them. I will report on the sweetness of the papaya then. Until then, feats your eyes!
