The Chikuse family planted this papaya tree a year ago and although it is still small, it is already giving them fruit.

Papaya trees are quick growing which is great as families and community groups plant a selection of fruit trees with some taking longer to bear fruit than others.

Our specialist fruit tree nursery team raise the seedlings from seed and are now working with more community groups to do the same.

They then help them to successfully plant them out and care for them.
