Besides, how do you stop a paw paw tree from growing too tall?
When I lived over in Hawaii for near seven years, I had many fruit trees including paw paw (we call it papaya). To stop the plants getting too tall we put a large coffee tin over the top of it. You could also use a small bucket of some sort. It doesn't kill the tree and it stunts it's growth.
Furthermore, what is the best fertilizer for papaya tree? Regular fertilizer applications with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer helps support proper papaya tree growth and fruit development. For the best results, use a 14-14-14 product starting in the third month after planting. Use 4 ounces of 14-14-14 per papaya tree, once every four weeks.
Also, why is my papaya tree dying?
Phytophthora is a highly destructive fungal disease that causes root, stem and fruit rot as well as rapid wilting and death. Water-soaked areas appear on the stem and, if they encircle it, the entire top part of the plant will wilt and die. Avoid damaging papaya stems.
How long do papaya trees take to grow?
