Papaya Red Lady-Early Fruiting
Red Lady is a foreign breed of papaya. The plant grows to a height of about 2.5 meters and fruits emerge all over it. Papaya grows well in places where proper sunlight and water permeable soil are available. Fruits can be harvested within 6 months. About 50 fruits grow on a single plant.
Red lady papayas are a larger variety like the maradol or tainung. They have green skins that turn yellow when ripe, though the fruit can be eaten when the skin is about halfway from green to yellow. They have vibrant salmon-colored flesh with a sweet aroma and melon-like flavor. Papaya Red Lady is excellent papaya for tropical and subtropical areas.
