In hot regions, Papaya can fruit in 6-9 months, in cooler regions it fruits in 9-11 months. The Papaya Tree produces heavily for about 3-4 years then needs to be replaced with another tree. It will live up to 7 years but the production and ornamental value drops after about 5 years.
Papaya is a tropical (Zone 8b-10) fruiting plant with gorgeous foliage. The botanical name is Carica Papaya from the family Caricaceae. The fruit is used green as a vegetable for salads (Green Papaya Thai Salad is my all-time favorite salad), and when ripe as a dessert. Papaya fruit is a rich source of vitamin A. Papaya is also an important medicinal plant used in constipation, indigestion, piles, skin diseases, etc.
