Papaya trees: are they invasive? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by ltorres034

I have planted a Papaya tree in my backyard. Is about 4ft tall. I recently notice a few backyards in other neighborhood that have what seems to be 8 to 10 Papaya trees all over the place! Are Papaya trees invasive and will take over my small backyard? I also have an Avocado tree and plan to add Mango and Guava.

I have never hear of papayas being invasive. I would not be concerned about that.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
