Hi Jorge.

The poor paw paws! (We usually call them paw paws in Australia (the papaya are longer and redder) and they grow well in suburban Brisbane). It's been decades since I have seen any frost in northern or inner northern Brisbane, although the western and far south western suburbs inland still get occasional frosts. More of a problem here is the city gobbling up farmlands and suburban sprawl. The naked trees look strange. I used to cut off a branch, make a pipe and blow bubbles through the hollow tube of the leaf stalk, when I was around 10-12 years old. Tfs!

Default To ChrisJ: papayas


there are many varieties of these fruits, here we named these ones of MAM√O (it is wild, rustic, yellow and no sweet) . papayas are smaller, more orange color, sweet an fragile and there is one we named FORMOSA MAM√O, that is like a giant papaya.
Yes, I did that with the branches and bubbles when I was a boy.
