When to put bags/hose on papaya fruit
Just bought a papaya plant and see I need to protect it from fruit flies and worms.
My papaya plant is already 3 feet or so and has several small papaya growing, which are about an inch right now. How big should they get before I put protection on the papayas? A baseball? A lime? now?
My current thought is to use panty hose, doubled, until they are big enough to hold a paper bag, which I'll tie with panty hose around the trunk. (thanks for the advice GW!)
