Papaya fruit has worms
I was happy with my papaya plant for constantly putting out its bloom and fruit. I just harvested a whole lot of it, but nothing is edible. It's all infected with papaya wasps maggots. Some suggest wrapping the fruit with cheesecloth, but it's not easy to do that. It will still leave some gaps in between for the wasps to get to the fruit and it also is tricky to do when the wasps start attacking the fruit at a very early stage. I have thought about covering the crown with fruit and all with a huge plastic drop cloth (like a greenhouse) over it and then secure it with a string around the mid trunk. I don't know if anyone has done it that way. Other than that, I don't know what else works. Would appreciate any help there is.
