Back in the summer we planted a papaya tree. Bush. Whatever.
I don't really know anything about papayas (obviously), but we now have flowers. And according to my online research, placement of said flowers makes this a female plant. (??)
Now, I know I make fun of non-farm folk for not understanding fundamentals of reproduction, lactation, etc., but here I go: does this mean I need a male plant to actually get fruit?
I don't get botany. But ask me about the mating habits of a goat and we can talk.
Anyhooo-- here's my papaya plant thing.
Hmmm. Where to Start?
