Papayas and Progress


When I returned to La Paz, Honduras last January Sister Edith had planted some papaya seedlings, little tiny things grown from the seeds of a papaya they had eaten.  It´s amazing how rapidly these trees grow.  Eight months later the maturing seedlings have multiple fruit growing.  Right click on the pictures to see the tremendous size and quantity of the ripening papaya.  When we move to our new home next year we intend to plant several seedlings to not only eat but to profit from the harvest.  Honduras´tropical environment provides a growing season practically year-round.  That´s Deysi Milagro posing reluctantly behind the tree leaves to demonstrate the size of the trees.
