Green Papayas will soon ripen!

Notice not just the ripening green Papayas but also the prominent leaf scars left by falling branches. I love the details of the veiny, deeply notched leaves as well. Fast growing and phenomenally easy to grow! Just eat a wonderful Papaya here in the tropics and throw the seeds in the yard! And months later there will be 20 or so Papaya trees a foot or so tall!
