Papaya Plant's First Fruiting Season

Hello friends! It's been a while since I updated this blog. Have been busy with Art Tipsy! Hope all of you are in good health.

I planted a papaya saplings about two years ago. The plant was stuck between banana plants, and the papaya plant suffered growth. Well, was good in a way; the plant grew taller in search of sunlight, and only then did she have fruits. By such a time, she was healthy and sturdy plant.

The papaya fruits are naati (native); have seeds in them. The fruits were absolutely sweet. Initially, this plant grew on our terrace garden, and then I moved it to land garden. Therefore, the soil is a combination of mud and construction material! Well, along with such hostile soil, there is horse manure and ash. It's the plants that have converted the hostile soil in to a fertile one! Please grow plants, and share fruits with your family, neighbors, and friends!

Our family and friends were happy to taste the organically grown sweet papayas. Photos of the papaya fruits.



  1. Hi Asha! I discovered your blog accidentally.Very nice pictures.just wanted to know what kind of ash you use for papaya plants and the purpose.can we use it for other fruit plants too?
    Thank you

    1. Thanks :-)

      Usually, I use the ash from burning garden leaves/twigs. Can be used (in varying quantity) for almost all plants.


Hi friends,

Thanks for visiting the blog site. Please leave a message to share experiments at your garden or to send me a feedback about my experiments. Even a simple "Hello" would make my day!
