Is this a papaya plant from my compost bin? (I did not intentionally plant this but I let it grow anyways). And if it is papaya can anyone please try and let me know which variety it is if posible? The biggest leaves are about 1ft/12-14in long.

Most definitely, and a female one, but for the variety, no Idea, perhaps fruits characteristics will be needed as well. Smiling

I agree, that's definitely Papaya (Carica papaya)
