Will they survive up there where you are at, or is your main concern just cool, not freezing.

Our main issue here is the cool summers.
I don't believe we see any more freeze than where I was in Antioch.
I am going to try a bunch of the papayas in different areas here but started so many figured I could sell the extras

What is the hardiness difference (if any) between Carica pubescens (Toronchi) and Carica stipulata (chamburro)? Especially towards the root rot issue.

Thanks,
James

I was reading that pubescent is just a little more cold hardy then regular papayas, I think the advantage is, it grows in a cooler climate. The chamburro is a bit more cold hardier then the pubescent. Both seem to have more cold tolerance for wet winter soils, then the tropical papayas,

One not mentioned is the Oak leaf papaya, it is quite hardy, can take down to the high to almost mid 20s with no damage, to very little damage. Here, even with long duration temps down to 22F, only got kill on wood one inch and less. Loves the heat, grows like a weed, I and Jeff Earl have grafted a few, but results are low, but then, maybe that is joust par for the course.

Do you know the success rate for Oak leaf as opposed to the others ?
is it harder to graft ?

Also, i have 3 types of papaya.
would you consider a trade instead ?
have several Maradol, some X-77 (university of Hawaii) and Malay Giant.
