Pretty sure it's a female based on flower rack structure.

Do you have the female plant?

Maybe this can help you distinguish the flowers.

Yes, there are few people around the world having a large Vasconcellea collection, including me, but none have seeds for sale.

I have only male plants. Been crossing them with pubescens, Horovitzia cnidoscloides, and quercifolia (hopefully) haha.

Thanks for the update. Hopefully someone fruits it soon. Seems overdue. Iím glad there are plants still out there and growing from the original seed hunting.

Good luck with the crosses!

Hi! is this papaya hardy? Will it pollinate Papaya/Vasconcella pubescens?

Appears to be hardy so far and it will definitely cross with V. pubescens.

Hi, could you (or somebody) send me one such plant (palanda papaya, with both male and female flowers) to Greece? When you say hardy, how hardy do you mean? Could it survive e.g. snow for two days? What is the scientific name of that "palanda papaya"?

Wish I could but I only have one male plant.

Nobody really knows on hardiness, I have a pretty soft winter where I am (might hit low 30's for a bit in winter) and it did well.

The scientific name is carica palandensis, or some places call it v. palandensis.

The currently accepted name is Vasconcellea palandensis.
