Male Papaya tree tenacles bear fruit!! WEIRD!
Okay, I think I have a mutant PApaya tree. I have two papaya trees, one male, and one female. They are both well beyond twelve feet tall now. I leave the male alive so he can fertilize the female papaya on a regular basis. I love my female, she makes lots of papayas almost the size of water mellons. Since the male got so big, I figure maybe its time to kill him. I looked at the tree yesterday, and I saw the weirdest thing. All the tenacles, since males have lots of long tenacles were there, but at the tip had papayas!!
I was like, what the heck is going on? Have any of you ever seen this? The males having fruits hanging on their tentacles? Almost like mellons or something.
What do you think?
