Selling HUGE Pumpkin size Papaya seeds(15-20 pound fruits)
« on: July 16, 2020, 01:48:14 PM »
This fruit came from a friend's tree in the neighborhood. He fertilizes heavily all his trees, but for some reason this 1 papaya tree produces fruits 5x bigger than any other ones he has. As you can see all the fruits are big, not just 1 oddball.

The fruit tasted amazing, none of the "vomit" taste ive seen attributed to papayas, and also ripened while still mostly green as you can see with the fruit on the counter, so less likely to be attacked by birds and other animals. This fruit was  around 15 pounds, but the rest on the tree are bigger. As you can see it also has limited number of seeds compared to the hundreds you find in small papayas.

Selling packs of 15 seeds for $15, 45 seeds for $37.50, 75  seeds for $55, Free shipping on all 3 packs.

The vomit taste to which you refer is a taint called nasturtium in papaya enthusiast circles. It is mainly in some yellow and more prominent in cooler climate grown fruit. Papaya breeding programs here also produced giants that have now disappeared into the mists of the past because they either collapsed upon ripening or people didn't want whoppers.


Don't know why aussie red never made it as they tasted so good.
I reckon that people should grow these 15 - 20lb giants and get more bang for their buck as that is an impressive size.

so far it doesn't seem like any of the fruits collapse when ripening. That happens a lot with papaya I've bought from the store though since they get so roughly handled they mold and collapse easily.


still have a decent amount left
