Anyone Know What Variety of Papaya This Is?

Recommended Posts

PalmTreeDude

I just got this Papaya from a local Publix, and am wondering if anyone knows what variety it is. I am wondering this because if there are seeds inside, I may try to grow them. Does anyone know when the best time to open a papaya is?

Shape and size look like those Hawaiian papayas.   Yellow flesh is solo, red/orange  is strawberry (sunrise), pink salmon is sunset and Waimanalo Dwarf Papaya.

Yellow flesh is solo

While I'm not sure what variety Palm Tree Dude posted, Solo are more orange than yellow flesh.  I have been growing them and eating Solo's for the last few years. 

Regarding whether to try growing the seeds, the test is if you like the fruit then go for it.  If you don't like the taste then why bother trying to grow it?  Mine always seem to flower late, so the fruit will hang on through winter and ripen in the spring sometime or in the case of last year even as winter was still closing.

I opened it up and ate it. It tasted very good! Also full of seeds, which I am trying different methods of germinatung right now. I believe it was a Solo, from all the information I have gathered.

      Tooty fruity fallin' in my garden.  Dypsis onilahensis hybrid and last photo of a Dypsis heteromorpha.  I have no idea if any of these are viable seeds.  What is fruiting in your garden right now?

      Does anyone know what these are? They were found washed up on the beach. There are 2 fruits and one with the fruit removed, revealing the seed. The fruit was sticky and almost web-like.

      Does anyone know of any good fruiting banana varieties? I am wanting to start some banana seeds in the fall and grow them indoors to a nice size and then plant them outdoors the next Spring with the hopes that they will get big enough to produce some bananas later in the summer.

      Hi, does anyone have seeds or seedlings of Aravaipa avocado? I cant seem to find it anywhere for sale online.
      I am located in EU (Croatia) where summers are really hot and winters get quite cold (depends on year). 
      That is why I am searching cold hardy avocado. Thanks for your time
