Why is my Papaya Fruit dropping it’s fruit to soon. There are a few common reasons why your Papaya fruit is dropping to soon. It could be anything from unpollinated flowers. If the flower was not pollinated then as it develops the plant will naturally drop fruit in it’s early stage of development. It could also be that the fruit tree has received to much or not enough water. Or that pest have infested the plant and so the Papaya will fall off the tree. How can you tell what is the reason that your fruit is falling.
- If papaya fruit is falling off when it is small, about the size of golf balls, the fruit drop is probably natural.
- A female papaya plant naturally drops fruit from flowers that were not pollinated.
- It is a natural process, since an unpollinated flower fails to develop into a fruit.
