Why The Big Gaps Between The Fruits?

At the Papaya Expo last May 8, 2014 at the papaya plantation of Jeff Arabelo, Jason Villegas of East-West Seed Company displayed this picture of a papaya with fruits that are far apart.

What’s the reason? Most likely, Jason explained, two months before the picture was taken, the plant was subjected to severe stress, particularly lack of water.

If you want to avoid these wide gaps between fruits, fertilize and water your papaya plants regularly. Don’t allow them to be stressed by lack of water. Also, avoid too much water. Provide drainage. Otherwise, your papaya trees will perish.
