And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day" (Genesis 1:31)

Growing a Papaya Tree from Seed

(Papaya - Seeds) As can be seen in this close up look at the seeds, not all of them have fully ripened (darkened). The four seeds we selected for planting were the darkest unblemished ones. We placed the seeds in a 6 inch diameter pot filled with about an inch of drainage stones on the bottom and potting soil to fill the pot to the top. We them planted the four seeds about three inches apart and about one-half inch deep, and gently watered the soil until it was soaked. We then placed the pot beside the window so it could receive plenty of sunlight, and we checked the soil every day to make sure it didn't dry out, as the seeds must be kept moist.
