Where do formosa papayas come from?
Formosa papayas grow in Brazil, on trees that can easily reach 4 metres high. The trees have a hollow trunk. The seedlings are planted when they are 4 weeks old. The papaya is a fast-growing tree: after only 5 to 8 months the tree is already 2 metres high and bearing its first fruit. The growers can harvest every day for 18 months, usually one fruit per day. After 18 months, the grower grubs up the field and the process starts all over again.
