So amazing! They get slightly softened I believe. I have only killed the plant at a young age, so maybe I am not the one to ask. 😉💞

Not sure, @sussanah hurricane last year wiped out the papayas the neighbors had, we think these are seeds, from them. There are fruit trees here called pawpaw, smaller fruit and they do better in cooler temps papaya are tropical, love the heat 😉

Yes it is @gauravsh6 😆 I plan on moving all the babies into pots... the seeds came from the neighbors plant, hurricane flung the fruit everywhere! Stripped all the leaves and broke them all in half 😨
