What is a Maradol Papaya?
The Maradol papaya is a large, sweet, and juicy variety of papaya. It is a popular choice for fresh eating, as well as for making smoothies, juices, and other dishes.
How to Grow Maradol Papayas from Seed
Maradol papaya seeds can be sown directly in the garden or started indoors. To sow seeds directly in the garden, wait until the soil temperature has reached at least 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Sow the seeds 1/2 inch deep and 2-3 inches apart. Thin the seedlings to 12-18 inches apart once they have emerged.
To start seeds indoors, sow them 6-8 weeks before the last frost date in your area. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch deep in moist, well-drained starting mix. Keep the soil warm and moist until the seeds germinate.
Once the seedlings have developed their first true leaves, transplant them into individual pots. Harden off the seedlings by gradually exposing them to outdoor conditions for a week before transplanting them into the garden.
Transplanting Maradol Papaya Seedlings
When transplanting Maradol papaya seedlings, choose a location in full sun with well-drained soil. Amend the soil with compost or manure before planting to improve drainage and fertility.
Space the plants 8-10 feet apart. Maradol papaya plants can grow quite large, so it is important to give them plenty of room to spread out.
Caring for Maradol Papaya Plants
Maradol papaya plants are relatively low-maintenance. Water them regularly, especially during hot weather. Fertilize the plants every 2-3 weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
Maradol papaya plants are not typically susceptible to pests or diseases, but they can be damaged by frost. If you live in a cold climate, you may need to protect your plants over the winter.
Harvesting Maradol Papayas
Maradol papayas are ready to harvest 9-12 months after planting. Harvest the papayas when they are fully ripe and have a bright yellow color. To harvest, simply cut the papayas from the plant with a sharp knife.
