The Carica Papaya Plant is a very unique plant that bears an edible fruit commonly referred to locally as pawpaw, while it's fruit is correctly known as papaya.

This plant has wide brightly colored green leaves that helps it trap a lot of sunlight which is a very important factor in it's growth.

Owing to it's design, this plant can grow in mild to moderate harsh conditions.

It may interest you to know that this plant practically grows anywhere. If not for it's delicious piquant fruit, it can easily be considered weed. Due to the way it grows, I heard someone saying this, "no one has ever owned a papaya Plant", because, no one has truly ever took the effort to plant one.

Just throw one of its seeds carelessly on any relatively fertile soil, in few weeks you get yourself a young papaya Plant as shown here.

Papaya plants can grow very tall, and very fast. They also don't develop strong roots in the ground to make them invisible.

At the end of the day, they are weed plants, that we always want around.

When I was in school, I hates botanical names because of how hard it was to pronounce and memorise. I love pawpaw and I got to learn from your post. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks. It may interest you to know that pawpaw is a different fruit. I'm sure you're referring to papaya instead, say you love papaya😅😂

Wait is the plant different from the fruit, I always thought the plant came from the fruit or rather vice versa

It's a rather complicated relationship. The fruit comes from the plant, but then the plant comes from the fruit (seeds). 😅
