Dear Farmenst friends,
We have 1500 papaya plants and the crop is in bearing currently. Since the bearing, the Papaya fruits are simply growing in size without showing signs of ripening with yellow lines. Even if some fruits are developing yellow lines, their number is too small (around 50 fruits out 1500 plants). This uneven yellowing is resulting in no buyers coming forward for two reasons viz
- Very few yellow lined fruits
- Fruit weight is crossing 2 kg which is not so much desired in the market.
Kindly suggest a method to induce ripening of fruits so that I can get more number of harvestable yellow lined fruits during each cutting which can eventually control the oversize/weight.
Your help in this regard is very much appreciated.
Thanks & Regards
