RED PAPAYA

Carica papaya 'Thai Red'
Member $12.95
The sweet, melting flesh of the papaya is the epitome of exotic backyard fruit, but you don't have to live in the tropics to grow papaya. It will grow happily outside planted in a protected spot in cooler areas (preferably on a north-facing wall) and will thrive in a pot inside where it's tropical-looking leaves create a striking effect. Self-pollinating so no need for more than one plant for fruit.
