The excitement of first fruit, first baby for Papaya.

Is the first fruit too tough for them, these papaya?. I guess it should. Like everything else, the first day to school, the first baby, the first day of exams and so on. Every emotional elements gets in, jumbled up and create what I suspect the excitement.

the three first fruits - Papaya

the excitement of it's first fruit. - Papaya.

I think the plants wish to make the experience having the first fruit last longer, as long as they can. So they stop having subsequent fruits for a while, utilising every bit of energy and nutrients to nurture their first fruit. At the same time building enough skill and knowledge to go for the next and next and next. I am sure, they are strengthening stems and roots also, to  stay strong and upright as fruits get bigger and bigger. They dont want to get toppled down by strong winds with the first baby..........

Just imagine, the work papaya plants got to do, to build massive reservoir of carbohydrate content, potassium, calcium, chlorine, iron, silicon, sodium, antioxidant nutrients such as beta-carotene, Vitamin A and C and flavonoids, B Vitamins, folate and panthotenic acid. And the best part is the fruits has to store Papain which is proteolytic enzyme that is said so powerful. Papain helps digesting an amazing 200 times its own weight of protein. These are nutritional contents that are beneficial to us, and Papaya plants work hard to get them ready before harvest!
