Willacy County, Texas
There are no groups in this location
Based on the Aggie Horticulture Network papaya fact sheet, we have a male papaya plant. "Male flowers are borne in long sprays that originate along the trunk. Each spray is much-branched with inch-long, trumpet-shaped, male flowers."
What I don't understand is why it is producing fruit. They are not the large papayas found on a typical female or hermaphrodite plant. Nonetheless, there is fruit hanging down.
Can someone explain this to me please? The flowers we look at only have stamen.
Almost looks like a succulent. Can't identify
