More Papaya Saga

What’s left of the Papaya “trunk” is now a Frog house BUT, this evening, after a very heavy storm, as I walked around checking if any plant needs rescue, I found the cuttings of the papaya tree, left on the pile to be composted. It’s not dying/drying up … actually it looks and feel very much alive. ImageImage

OK, let’s see if it can actually re-grow some roots.
Dug soil and added compost & dung. Sprinkled some rooting hormone.

Put the cut-off top in that patch and covered with more compost & dung mixture. It actually looked very healthy, like some miniature, semi-matured papaya tree with little fruits still intact. Image

Will those fruits continue growing? Will it re-grow roots & live on to survive Fall & under a blanket during Winter frost? Now I’m really curious….

If it does continue growing and fruiting, I can’t call this a volunteer ~ more like a Born Again tree.
