Carica palandensis - Papillo


Out of stock

4 seeds per pack. A very rare papaya relative, discovered only in 1995 growing deep in the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest. The delightful round fruits are around softball sized and contain tasty edible pulp that can used fresh and as a drink flavoring. It is a small tree up to 6 m / 20ft, naturally growing around 1800 m / 5900 ft in the mountains, so there is some potential for tolerance to cooler temperatures. Ultra-rare and still unstudied. #4321
