Answer: The Papaya is a polygamous species. The plants may be<br>classified into 3 primary sex types: 1) male (staminate),<br>2) hermaphroditic (bisexual, and 3) female (pistillate).<br>In addition some plants can produce, at the same time,<br>more than one kind of flower. Also, some produce flowers<br>which are not of these basic forms, but exhibit different<br>degrees of maleness and femaleness. This tendency to <br>change in sexual expression seems to be triggered by<br>climatic factors, such as drought and variable<br>temperatures. The tendency to produce male flowers <br>seems to increase at high temperatures.<br><br>Sine the male trees are unfruitful, and fruit from<br>bisexual plants is preferred, you really do not need<br>the male tree.
