Sowing Media Very well-drained or sandy loam soil with adequate organic matter

Water Moderately

Sun Prefers full sun

Notes Very intolerant of water-logging. In high rainfall area provision for quick drainage of excess water must be made. If the plant roots are continuously submerged in water for more than 2 days the plants may die. The growing field should be kept moderatly humid as soil moisture is necessary for the growth of papaya plants. However, dry climate at the time of fruit ripening is good for improved fruit quality. Papaya does not like strong winds and extreme temperatures. It is, therefore, recommended to grow papaya plants in sheltered spaces that receive full sunshine. The plants need protection from strong winds. Staking or growing windbreaks can provide effective support and protection. Minimum 10% hermaphrodite plants are required for pollination. The plant needs continual fertilization once it reaches maturity to bear fruits continually.
