Papayas in Houston; When will they ripen?
I have a Papaya tree planted in the ground in Houston. It has a half dozen large papayas on it. One has been hanging since summer. All are still totally green. When will they ripen? All I have seen on the net says that you cannot ripen them off the tree. I have coveered the tree so far but as the temperature drops I don't know what to do.
