Evaluation of papaya (Carica papaya L.) hybrids in Pococí, Limón, Costa Rica.
Agronomía Mesoamericana: Vol. 15, Issue 1 (January-June)
An experiment was established
to determine the agronomic and commercial potential of nine
papaya hybrids in a region of high rainfall (Pococí region,
Limón province). The characteristics determined where fruit
size, total productivity, pulp brix and susceptibility to fruit rot
caused by Colletotrichum gloesporioides. It was determined
that only one of these hybrids had commercial potential as a
dessert fruit comparable to the control. One other hybrid had
potential to be used for industrial purposes.
