Product Description

Carica papaya cv "SOLO" commonly referred to as Solo papaya, is a popular cultivar of the Carica papaya species known for its compact size, rapid fruit production, and sweet, flavorful papayas. This cultivar is highly regarded by gardeners and fruit enthusiasts for its convenience and delicious fruit. 

Solo papaya is a compact and dwarf variety of the papaya tree, making it well-suited for smaller gardens, patios, and even container cultivation. It typically grows to heights of 6 to 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 meters) when mature, which is significantly smaller compared to standard papaya varieties. The plant features a single, unbranched trunk with large, deeply lobed leaves at the top, similar to other papaya trees.

What distinguishes Solo papaya is its remarkable fruit production and manageable size. The fruit is usually medium-sized, with a round to pear-shaped appearance. When ripe, the skin turns a vibrant yellow or orange color, and the flesh inside is juicy, sweet, and orange in hue. Solo papayas are known for their excellent flavor, often described as tropical and delectable, making them a popular choice for fresh consumption, smoothies, and desserts.

One of the most appealing attributes of Solo papaya is its ability to bear fruit at a relatively young age, often within 9 to 12 months after planting. This characteristic makes it a favored selection for home gardeners who want to enjoy homegrown papayas without a long waiting period.
