Leaning papaya
« on: September 27, 2022, 06:23:05 PM »






I know itís a concern when papayas lean, especially young. I think this is wind or sun related.

Should I add a stake and haul it over?

This is a male so it wonít hold fruit if Iím not mistaken?

If it is a male very unlikely to ever make a fruit. Sometimes rarely they can make a fruit so this is an ornamental and wouldnt be carrying fruit.

You do need a male for pollination of true females though, right?
