Papaya is a tropical fruit-bearing tree that thrives in Nepal’s warmer regions. With its large palmate leaves and elongated fruits, papaya adds a touch of tropical beauty to the landscape. Papaya trees typically take around 6 to 9 months to reach maturity and bear fruit, depending on the variety and growing conditions. The papaya fruit is known for its sweet and juicy flesh, rich in vitamin C and digestive enzymes. It is enjoyed fresh, blended into smoothies, or used in various culinary preparations. Papaya cultivation provides a delicious and nutritious addition to Nepal’s fruit diversity.
