Long shelf life papaya hybrid with a deep red flesh color that yields very well. Fruit setting is low on trees, as low as 65 centimeters from the ground with an average at 70 centimeters. Taste is very sweet, with a high brix and fruits are very aromatic. Average weight per fruit is about 2 kilos, however growers have reported fruit weight being within the range 1.6 and 2.2 kilos, depending on cultural practices. Excellent choice for the larger papaya fruit sized segment due to high tolerance to PRSV. Variety consists of 50% hermaphrodite and 50% female trees.
