Papaya leaves

Papayas are not my favorite fruit, but the papaya tree is lovely. Here's a picture of one of my young papaya trees in the rain. The pair of trees has just gotten taller than me and are almost up to six feet. Before they're done, they will certainly be taller than the house.

The seeds for these papayas were a very kind gift from a friend in Hawaii, who says that this type of papaya, 'Sunrise,' is much tastier than others. We planted the entire packet; some grew, many dyed young. Only this pair survives. They are very sturdy so we have high hopes that they will live to grow up.
