Thank u Sri Bhavu :slight_smile:

I would like to know that all the available varieties of papaya which are hybrid and which ones are desi. In future if i would want to go for papaya plantation i would want to grow desi papayas with natural farming process. Please suggest.

Papaya is not a native fruit of India. but farmers prepare plants from selected trees without any name we can call this as desi.

Honey Dew, Coorg Honey Dew, CO-1,2,3,4, Pusa Delicious, Pusa Majesty, Pusa Giant, Pusa Dwarf, Pusa Nanha, Pusa Nahi, Solo, Arka Surya,Arka Prabhat. All these are developed by Govt institutions across India.

Marketable verities are, RedLady, Arka Surya, Solo.

Redlay is widely accepted in market because of its keeping quality, uniform size and moderate taste.
Solo taste wise better than redlady but keeping quality is not good. Shop keepers/fruit mandis offer less price for this veriety.

Sri, thanks for the market info. Arka Surya, Solo aren’t they same? I mean Surya is derived from Solo itself (its derived from sunrise solo)
