    There is only 1 item left in stock.

    This listing is for 10 (TEN) freshly collected Strawberry Papaya SEEDS.  Your Papaya seeds will arrive packaged in damp paper toweling inside sealed plastic baggies. Enjoy the fun of growing this easy to grow tropical fruit tree in your garden.  When available, offered in larger sized seed packets. 
    These seeds are from GMO FREE Strawberry Papayas. The papayas that these seeds come from have a delicious sweet taste and beautiful color. Try eating chilled Papaya with fresh squeezed Lime, a delightful flavor combination. 
    One of the listing photos is of Strawberry Papaya paired with Tahitian Lime, both grown in our Haiku, Maui garden.
    PLEASE NOTE-If you are a novice gardener, please read up on how to grow Papaya trees in your particular area/growing situation. 
    We do not provide written growing instructions with (or after) you receive your fresh Maui grown seeds safely.   Below I do offer some 'Gardening Tips'.
    Papaya is a great tree for Home Gardeners looking to grow their own fruit quickly.  PAPAYA TREES WILL MAKE A MALE AND FEMALE TREE.  YOU NEED BOTH TO PRODUCE FRUIT.  There is a photo of the longer flowers found on the MALE trees shown.  The FEMALE trees will be the ones to produce the fruits.  Plant the male and female trees near each other/together in same area.  
    I have had luck starting my Papaya seeds in a communal container of good potting soil. Keep your seedlings evenly watered and warm at all times. Papaya seeds will germinate at different rates.  I like to start mine in a communal container of good potting soil.  Keep evenly watered and warm (75-85 degrees) at all times.  Once your baby Papaya trees are large enough you can carefully transplant the faster growing ones into individual containers. I like to get my seeds to grow a healthy root system (be a happy plant) before planting it in the ground/garden/full sun.
