Exotic and deliciously edible, ‘TR Hovey’ is a dwarf papaya that was hybridized for hydroponic culture and is perfect for growing in pots. Given good culture, 'TR Hovey’ will grow quickly and produce ripe fruit in as little as one year’s time. Fruit will start developing only 12” from the base of the plant. 'TR Hovey' will attain a maximum height of 6-8' in South Florida.
Papayas are extremely easy to grow in South Florida, needing only a location in full sun and a well-drained soil that is moist in summer and slightly drier in winter. For maximum fruit production, give new transplants a soil amended with organic compost, and fertilize established shrubs 3-4 times during the spring and summer.
