Growing papayas in South Mississippi
I wanted to show the papayas I have always wanted to grow here in my area. I planted them in a pot in August from seed the type is Red Lady dwarf, only grow to 8ft. I planted them in the ground in April, as soon as there was no fear of frost to kill the young plants. I keep them well watered and use high nitrogen twice a month. I found this systems works to grow my favorite fruit here in South Mississpi. This is my first try at this. I would like to ask when are they ready to pick?
I planted two just to see how they would do and they are now 6ft!! And producting many flowers every day!
If there is more information as to keeping them in winter here please let me know? I also would like to know if anyone in my area has done this?
Thank you and blessings
