How to Grow a Papaya Plant

This is a very cool science or biology experiment that can yield delicious results given some time. Keep an extended lab sheet on this project to include in your portfolio.

Start with a fresh papaya fruit.

Remove the slippery coating from brown seeds and plant 1/2 inch down in soil. A plastic bag will keep the seeds warm and moist while the green stem topped with finely cut leaves emerges. As it grows, it resembles a small palm tree. Grow in bright sunlight.
