This is growing in my vegetable patch and I let it grow to identify and it took over. I am fairly familiar with flora of Ga. But not this!!

    Looks like a papaya… Looks happy in your veggie garden…
    not frost hardy 🙁

    Do you have room in your house to bring it indoors?

    In Macon, I’ve gotten them to fruit in a single growing season… but the fruit never seemed to quite get ripe enough.

    Definitely papaya, but need a male and female plant for fruit and must flower to determine gender.
