Description Fine Print
 
Carica 'T.R. Hovey' is a dwarf hybrid papaya that is self fertile. It can produce delicious, ripe fruit within 9 - 12 months on short plants only a couple feet tall. It grows well in containers outdoors in a warm location in the summer and can be moved indoors to spend winter as a houseplant. The cool structure of this small tree and its tropical, dissected foliage on purple stems will look fantastic both on your patio and in your living room! Good drainage is important. Safest to keep above about 10 degrees Celsius.
