Nicknamed as “fruit of the angels” by the Italian explorer and colonizer Christopher Columbus, papaya is a popular herb in tropical areas, most specifically Southeast Asia. It can only grow in warm areas as it cannot tolerate cold or freezing temperatures. These days, you can plant some in zones 10 to 12 in the US and other colder countries.
Most people regard papaya as a tree but botanically speaking, it’s a large herb with thin and soft trunk but no branches or barks. It usually grows to a height that’s easily reached, unlike coconut. However, some may grow tall as high as 20 up to 30 feet. Although it grows and produces fruits fast, this kind of plant easily dies within a short period of time.
