Notes:

My grandmother said she planted a seed and this grew. It’s about 3 feet tall, maybe a little more. It’s tree like, but it has no branches. The leaf stem connects directly to the “trunk”

    I thought maybe some variety of papaya, but the leaves do look different. The leaves look different in every shot, I wonder if they change that much as they age. Just flip through the slides and see what you think.

    Certainly, Carica papaya, the common Papaya.
