Growing papaya trees is generally done from seed that is extracted from ripe fruit. If you are using fruit from a grocery store, it is most likely going to be a bisexual plant.
You should plant several seeds per pot to ensure germination. Under full sunlight, seedlings may emerge in about two weeks. Plants can be set out after they are a foot tall and spaced 8 to 10 feet apart. The seedlings will flower after five or six months.
When considering the best papaya growing conditions in the home landscape, don’t forget about planting location.
The best place to plant papaya is on the south or southeast side of a house with some protection from wind and cold weather. Papayas also grow best in full sun.
Papayas like well-drained soil, and because of shallow roots, growing papaya trees will not tolerate wet conditions.
