Papaya ‘TR Hovey’ (Carica papaya)
Exotic and deliciously edible, ‘TR Hovey’ is a dwarf papaya that was hybridized for hydroponic culture and is perfect for growing in pots. Papayas need sunny, warm growing conditions and the soil temperature needs to be 60°F or higher. With the right cultural conditions ‘TR Hovey’ will grow quickly and produce ripe fruit in as little as one year’s time. Grow it inside in the winter and take it outside in the summer months. Fruit will start developing only 12” from the base of the plant. The pictured plant is about 3’ tall and grew big fruit after only 10 months. Do not overfeed but fertilize moderately on a regular basis. Remember to keep the plant warm; if it gets too cold, it can get root disease.

  1. First time growing a papaya Review by Kurt
    How do you rate this product?

    Wow! This guy has surprised me with its speed. In 1 season it went from out of box (almost a foot) to 4.5 feet in a tiny 10 gal pot. I have flowers coming and hopefully fruit to follow! (Posted on 10/3/2016)
