Hawaiian Papaya Seeds
Fill a 12 inch or larger pot with good potting soil and water thoroughly. Sprinkle the seeds over the top of the soil and then cover lightly with more soil. Mist the top-soil and place in a warm, dry place with lots of sun. Papayas cannot take a freeze. Once they are growing, water just as the soil dries out. Do not over water. Fertilize regularly with a general-purpose fertilizer.
