Description

Papaya Hawaiian Solo Sunrise

This papaya is grown in larger quantities than any other variety on the plant. These sweet, red fleshed fruit can weigh up to 4 pounds and have a star shaped cavity when cut sideways.

Fruit can set when the tree is just 3 feet tall. This is an excellent variety for the home gardener and for anyone wanting to grow a papaya in a pot!

Growing Papaya

Papaya is a short-lived perennial growing to 30 ft (9.14 m) high. Its hollow, herbaceous stem is usually unbranched. The deeply lobed, palmate leaves are borne on long, hollow petioles emerging from the stem apex. Flowers occur in leaf axils. Older leaves die and fall as the tree grows.

Papaya flowers are fragrant and have five cream-white to yellow-orange petals 1 to 2 in (2.5 to 5.1 cm) long. The stigmatic surfaces are pale green, and the stamens are bright yellow.Papaya fruits are smooth skinned. They vary widely in size and shape, depending on variety and type of plant. Hermaphrodite plants of commercial ‘Solo’ varieties in Hawaii usually produce fruits that are pear shaped and weigh approximately 12 to 30 oz (340 to 851 g).

Female plants of ‘Solo’ varieties produce round fruits. Other papaya varieties produce variously shaped fruits, which may weigh up to 20 lb (9.1 kg). The fruits usually contain many seeds surrounded by a smooth yellow to orange-red flesh that is sweet in good varieties.
