There are so many variety of papaya seeds are available in indian markets.we have to see mainly 3 things.one is high yielding capacity, the second is sweetness & aroma and third is keeping quality and fitness for transporting. upto my knowledge redlady papaya ,released by known you seed co, taiwan is having all the above characters and widely accepted and planted by many farmers of soth india,mainly a.p   This variety gives very good yield,good fruit for transport and keeping quality,have good market acceptance. But main problem with this variety is very suceptable to virus.the best way is do organic farming and results in organic/natural farming is good upto my knowledge. gprao,farmer.
Thanks

Thanks for the reply g.p.rao
Is there no alternative and acceptable variety in the market? The problem is we have to import(or some company would do it for us) the seeds from Taiwan. This is less sustainable and gives less control to the farmer. Was looking for something local
Also is the life span of the Red lady is same as that of others. I heard red lady is just 1.5 years. So after every 1.5 years we have to procure seeds from Taiwan :(

Thanks,

Comments from Mr. G P Rao on Surya variety:

As far as variety is cocerned ,M/s known you seed co ltd,taiwan it self is not introducing any new variety in papaya as they do not want to discard this red lady, with a doubt that any new variety may not click in the markets better than red lady. its my opinion.

As far as taste and quality is concerned SURYA is a best variety but as the size is small,it is difficult to market.I have grown surya long back and markets did not accept it much.                                               G.p.Rao,farmer

Please continue discussion on varieties here and on ripening on the linked thread, thanks.

Did anybody try Arka-Prabhat ? Its size is comparable to Red lady. Looking through the materials online it was mentioned somewhere that Prabhat was introduced to compete with Red lady by a Bangalore's Horticulture university.

Thanks,

Check them. Red Lady grown by me was very good in taste, may be the cultivation practices to get more taste. Yes, taste of a product differs with cultivation practice. Natural farming will provide more tasty and healthy produce over all.

Dear sirs, Generally market traders likes papaya to be around 1.5 to2 kgs weight. Fruit should have good colour, good acceptance for taste, and keeping quality. In taditional and country varieties taste is good but they are very poor in colour,keeping quality and stiffness. Upto my knowledge , variety of papaya released in our  universities/institutes  are not having all the qualities, which are required to have in papaya ie; high yieldingness, sweet and aroma, keeping quality and market acceptance. But our indian variety are very resistant to disceases and pest especially very resistant for virus.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Hence our farmers are preferingto cultivate the RED LADY variety of Known You seed co of taiwan. It is having  high productivity, Very good keeping quality, very good taste and aroma and hence has good market acceptance. But mazor hurdle is  this RED LADY variety papaya is very suceptable to virusses and also more pest and disceases compare to our indian varieties.                                                                                                                                                                     There is  variety named SURYA ,i think released by IIHR is having very good characters like high yielding,sweet and good flavour and good keeping quality that market need but unfortunately its size, size of  fruit is very less ,weighing only ie; 400 gms to 700 gms, and this variety is not encouraged by market traders.                                                                                                                                                                        The SURYA fruit is having very good acceptance in the houses and consumers.                                                                                                                                                                   I want to suggest our farmer friends who wants cultivate papaya fruits, Go cultivate preferably Red Lady and if not SURYA, but if cultivating RED LADY prefer to cultivate only organically/Natural farming way as this system can reduce much problems of virusses and pests. Pl use maximum pancha gavya ,once in 15 days and jeevamrutha, once in a week. These are my observations while doing the papaya crop i followed and it is my my opinion only.                                                                                                                                                       thanking you,farmer,g.p.rao
