Got this for $2.50 in July 2012. Got the second one, Lady Red Papya which is in the back garden area from Lowes for $2 or so.
Seem to be growing.
The Papya to the side of the house was planted in July and when I got here in November it was nearly dead from drought but with some water it appears to be growing. The more mature plant is in the back and has only been in the ground for a few days.
Just planted it.
