Abstract
'Sunset' is a new hybrid solo papaya selection with uniform, salmon-pink flesh. 'Sunset' most resembles 'Sunrise' solo but with more uniform fruits averaging about 15 percent smaller than those of 'Sunrise'. The yellow external skin color of 'Sunset' is more intense and develops somewhat earlier than that of 'Sunrise'. Ripe 'Sunset' fruits are also firmer than those of 'Sunrise' and have two to four days longer shelf life than 'Sunrise' when both are harvested at a similar stage of maturity.
