Performance of Hawaiian cultivars of pawpaw (Carica papaya L.) in Ghana

, : Performance of Hawaiian cultivars of pawpaw (Carica papaya L.) in Ghana. Acta Horticulturae (53): 321-324

Of the 7 Hawaiian cvs tested, 3 Solo cvs (Sunrise, Andy and Waimanalo) showed good quality and size for export. They also yielded well and appeared well adapted to environmental conditions at Kumasi. Fruits from both female and hermaphrodite trees may be utilized since no significant difference was found in quality.

Marked variation was observed in stem, leaf, flower and fruit characters, including quality, in varieties in Ghana. It is concluded that variation in some of these characters could be used as a basis for selection.
