Although, papaya (Carica papaya L.) is a tropical plant, it can be grown under favorable microclimatic conditions in subtropics. Papaya is a popular species due to its ease of cultivation and propagation, fast growth and economic returns in short periods, and ability to adapt to different soil and climatic conditions. Papaya fruit is a good source of vitamin A, B and C, and also is very important in terms of several industrial uses. In this article, papaya’s morphological and biological characteristics, cultivars and cultural practices and also its growing possibilites under Turkey’s climatic conditions are discussed.
