Papaya grove

This is a photo of a papaya grove in the plains about a half hour east of Tamarindo. Papaya trees are native to Central America and Mexico and grow in the wild in the Pacific lowlands, such as the terrain around Tamarindo.

These papaya are not growing in the wild, but are part of a plantation that is near a Del Monte packing plant.

This week we are showing photos of the wildlife of the Serengeti in Tanzania on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Nice, we call them "paw-paw" in Cape Town, and they are lovely to eat in the summer

I think the only place I have ever seen papaya growing is in Costa Rica. I see that I missed a lot of great wild life shots while I was away. Love yesterday's iguana. He's a beauty!

I have never seen these growing so this is very interesting to me.
