But the current experiment with papaya will hopefully be all females. The seeds were clinically selected. Two varieties are grown right now. The first type had been grown here last year, which had produced lots of fruits and the second was given by Farah. She was our eldest daughter now in Jitra Kedah

Mulch around the base of young papaya tree is like kids with socks. Mulch will protect plants during hot weather. I can leave them on their own when we need to be away for a few days. The safest approach to collect mulching material is to grow them. Grasses offer decent source, like lemongrass and napier grass.
