have this thai heirloom variety on my property, fruits are always yellow, never green, purple stem.  Leaves not particularly large.  think you looking for something else.

the taste is not as good as other varieties... like Gaek Dam (blows out anything sold in Hawaii)  you could call this like a 'cooking papaya' 
If you want in January can send you seeds, but not sure if true to seed.  I have no males on property now, but several hermies of Gaek Dam I think are still hanging around.  Lost my giant male Gaek Dam in monsoon last year.

There are some for sale on eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Broadleaf-Papaya-Plant-Carica-LIVE-FRUIT-TREE-self-fertile-RARE-tropical/192731444597?hash=item2cdfb07575:g:~5UAAOSwCtNb9MgH

I got mine from them, but it has green leaf stems. It could be either with green or red leaf stem.

I am confused from which varieties are males, females or hermies you have there
