    Sunlight: Grow best in full sun. Papayas love the heat and sunlight.
    Soil: Papayas do best in rich soil that is high in organic matter. Make sure your planting location and soil has good drainage to avoid root rot.
    Water: Water the papaya plants around the root zone as needed.
    Temperature: The best air temperatures for papayas range from 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year.
    Fertilizer: Apply a complete fertilizer every two months after planting, using a formula that contains nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, such as 10-10-10.
