Papaya

You well know that I'm that kind of guy who loves to save seeds. This is a papaya (sorry picture is not showing the entire plant.) that I started from... yes, seeds months ago! It has grown bigger after I transplated it from it's small pot to the soil. I'm sure I was eating papayas imported from the Hawaiian Islands that day.
There are male and female flowers. This is an example of the female flower along the trunk... and the presence of miniature papaya at the base of the flower petals. I have eleven(?) of these papayas growing in my backyard and most of them now flowering.
