Carica papaya 'Rwanda Giant'
(Deutsche Beschreibung in Kürze verfügbar) Everyone knows the papaya of course. What is less known is that there are literally hundreds of bizarre landraces the world over. This giant-fruited variety from the highlands of Rwanda in southeastern Africa is remarkable for its enormous, rounded, football-sized fruits with delectable flesh. Cultivation is easy, similar to that of any other papaya, and it also makes a nice ornamental with a usually unbranched trunk large, dark green, palmate leaves.
