The whole plant is about 30" in ~ three years. I have my doubts it will fruit,but this is the first time I ever had a Papaya live past a December,let alone this group live into their third summer. 10" of Papaya height a year means its going to be awhile before I see it look like something. Still,I have impressed myself since growing that here was impossible pre 1990,maybe pre2000. I do understand that for most of the hot summer USA,its not so big a deal!
