Re: Cultivation of Hybrid Red Lady Papaya
   

Red lady papaya -
Early, vigorous, productive, and tolerant to papaya ring spot virus. Plants begin to bear fruit at 60-80 cm height and have over 30 fruits per plant in each fruit-setting season. Fruits are short oblong on female plants and rather long-shaped on bisexual plants, weighing about 1.5-2 kg. Flesh is thick, red, with 13% sugar content, and aromatic.

About cultivation -
- Papaya (Carica papaya) produces fruits throughout the year. It requires less area per plant, comes to fruiting in a year, is easy to cultivate and provides more income/ha next to banana.
- About 250-300g seeds are sufficient for a hectare. The seedlings can be raised in nursery-beds 3m long, 1m wide and 10cm high as well as in pots or polythene bags. The seeds should be sown 1cm deep in rows 10cm apart and covered with fine compost or leaf-mould. Light watering should be done with watercan in the morning.

- Tender seedlings should also be protected from heavy rainfall. Dusting of insecticides to protect the seedlings against insect pests is also advised. Damping off is most serious disease. Treating seeds with 0.1% Monosan (phenyl mercury acetate), Ceresan, Agrosan or Thiram dust before sowing is the best preventive measure to check it. The nursery-beds should also be treated with 5% formaldehyde solution before sowing. If disease appears in the nursery, Bordeaux mixture (1%) or copper oxychloride (0.2%) should be sprayed.

- Papaya is planted during spring (February- March), monsoon (June- July) and autumn (October- November). Spring planting is done in areas where the climatic condition is mild throughout the year. Monsoon planting is preferred in the frost-prone areas, and autumn planting generally done in the regions where the rainfall is high and virus problem is acute in rainy season.

- Since papaya does not withstand waterlogging, a well-drained upland should be selected for its cultivation. Its plants are also sensitive to strong winds
- The seedlings are planted in pits of 60cm x נ60cm x נ60cm size. The pits are dug about 15 days before in summer and filled with top soil along with 20kg farmyard manure, 1kg neem or karanj cake and 1kg bone-meal or fish-meal. Tall and vigorous varieties are planted at greater spacing, while medium and dwarf ones at closer spacing.

- Planting distance is determined by the integration of light interception, cultivar and economic consideration. A spacing of 1.8m x נ1.8m is normally followed for most of the cultivars.

Re: Cultivation of Hybrid Red Lady Papaya
   

Dear Sir,

Cultivating papaya is appreciatable but not in 200 acres at a time.  Start with ten acres this year and go for large extent in next year.  In Papaya, Red Lady 786 variety (Taiwan) is the best variety.  It is producced by M/s. Knownyou company of Taiwan.  Source the seeds from a reliable supplier and raise your own nursery.   For your immediate reference, we are attaching a pdf file about detailed information on Papaya.  For further inforamton and consultancy services you can contatct us.

Regards

Raghu Ram
