Is anyone familiar with this mountain Papaya (Vasconcellea hyb.)?
I got a cutting (now rooted) and a fruit (now a seedling) of a mountain Papaya that grows in a friend's yard in San Francisco.
Fruits are about the size of an apricot, and there are many (!). There are many more, smaller fruits than for Vasconcellea pubescens, or for a Babaco, one of its hybrids
My friend told me the plant is Vasconcellea pubescens x Vasconcellea Dioeca. I'm not finding any evidence of the second name (or of V. dioica), however there is a V. monoica in the list of Vasconcellea species..
It's an attractive plant. Hopefully the photo captures that.
