Anyone successfully grown papaya from seed to fruit in Cen Ca?

11 years ago

Has any one successfully grown papaya from seeds to fruiting stage in Central Ca, especially in Fresno or the likes? I am currently growing some waimanalo(sp?) that are about 2 inches now. Can I expect to get fruits with in the same year after I plant them in ground this spring and expect the fruits to be tree ripen or will I just get unripe green fruits when winter comes? And are these dwarf, because the description I read online said this is a low bearing type which will bear when it's only 3'-4' but mature plants will reach 10'+? This is my first time growing a papaya plant, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
