Why is my Plant dying?
Papaya plants are very susceptible to waterlogging. Even 24 hour stagnation with water may kill the established plants. Make sure the quick and complete drainage of water happens on the soil beds. Plants are also sensitive to strong winds.
Why isn't my plant giving fruits even after flowering?
It's probably a male plant. Male papaya plants will obviously not give you fruits. That is exactly the reason why one should plant at least five papaya plants per garden.
My potted Papaya plant is not growing properly.
Papaya should be grown in big pots. Size of pot should not be less than 75 x 40 cm. Also the potted papaya plant must be placed in sunlight.
All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended

Fruits should be left on the tree until they fully mature. Usually fruits are harvested when they are of full size, light green, and tinge of yellow near a tip. When the latex becomes watery instead of milky, the fruits are suitable for harvesting.
Papaya is grown in well drained and aerated soil. A rich, sandy loam soil is ideal for cultivation.
Optimum soil moisture is essential for growth, yield and quality of fruits. Water papaya tree every 8-10 days in winter and twice a week in summers. Potted plants should be watered daily.
Regionally in India, Papaya is also known as Papita, Popai, Papaiyu, Papali Kai.
