Abstract:Papaya fruits may fall from the plant when about golf-ball size due to lack of pollination of a female flower. The distinction between female and hermaphrodite papaya plants is described. With “solo” papaya cultivars, allowing three seedlings to develop in each planting site gives a 96 percent chance that selection for a single hermaphrodite plant will be possible.
