Papaya Tree Care  

The papaya tree grows very fast, but it is a short lived tree. The leaves resemble that of a palm tree. It is quite an ugly tree which grows very tall, and the trunk is devoid of leaves.

The leaves grow only on the top, and so does the fruit. However, if you are growing a papaya tree, then you should understand the tree’s needs, and make sure that it gets everything it needs.A papaya tree has to be protected in several ways while it grows. It is prone to several tree diseases, and you should know how to protect the tree from them. Fruits also tend to develop rot and spots. In order to get spotless papayas, you need to invest in some good organic pesticide, and spray it every once in a while.

Also, when the plant is growing, you need to ensure it is getting proper nutrients. When a plant does not get its nutrients, it develops various problems. The papaya tree, when it is growing, is always hungry. You need to mix the soil with a lot of nutrients, and make sure it is always fertile and rich in nutrients. One of the best ways to feed the soil is to use organic fertilizers. They tend to get used up, and you can keep refilling them. Remember to feed the soil around a papaya tree every few weeks, or every time the plant grows about one to one and a half foot tall.

Water the plant regularly. You should not water too much, or else the plant will develop root rot. Make sure the soil gets to breathe. Also, if you are expecting bad weather in terms of frost, then you would need to protect the plant. If it is too tall, then the frost may not affect the fruits.
