    Thank you. I've read about another variety of papaya called IPB9 Calina. May I know your opinion about this variety of hybrid papaya.

    Callina IPB 9 is F2 ( second generation ) hybrid variety papaya developed by Late Prof Dr. Sriani Sujiprihati ( Scientist , Plant Breeding ,Institut Pertanian Bogor , Indonesia ) from native Callina papaya variety in 2011

    Now they have developed IPB -10 for sap ( papain ) collection purpose .

    If you are planning to go for a foreign F2 plant variety plantation , then it’s makes more sense to import from the actual mother seed breeder and follow their crop management methodology in actual
    Approx price for 150 seed ( male –female ) will cost you RD 60,000 ( INR 290 ) plus courier charge .

    If you have soiled your own hands in farming then it’s easier for you to chalk out things to do for papaya cultivation in advance .

    Germination : 80-90 % germination , you are lucky
    Nursery development : Good growing media for the growth of the sprouts .
    Transplanting :
    Fertiliser applications :
    Pest control : susceptible to 4 pest species
    Disease control : Susceptible to 3 plant disease
    Irrigation :
    Male –female plant sorting : at 3-4 month ( first flowering) if you can identify male plants and know how to convert a male plant into fruit bearing female plant then you are experienced farmer .
