Default Anyone have an image of a healthy Papaya leaf?

I have my 1st attempt at a Papaya tree growing in the back yard at about 3' right now. It seems to be growing well, but the leaves are not solid green like they were when I 1st planted it. What are the mature leaves supposed to look like? Anyone have a good image? I looked on the net, but could not find one.
Thanks,
--Rick

I have seen that yellow speckling on some of my Dwarf Ranchii papaya leaves when young but they seem to grow out of it. And the plant seems to be nice solid green now. Have you been fertilizing them?

I gave it some 10-10-10 fertilizer at the 1st sign of the off color. Thinking it needed more nitrogen. Nothing since then(about 2 wks ago). I found some wild ones, and I'm tempted to plant them too, just in case this one bites the dust.

Someone said spider mites. How do I get rid of them? I tried just spraying the undersides with a mild soap solution, but it didn't seem to help

I have a small plant grown from seed this summer. I've been feeding it tomato food (!)

The new leaves are the right color green, after repeated spraying, washing, spraying, washing, etc. I am still keeping an eye on it though. I now have 2 other varieties on the way. The one in the picture is "red lady" self poliating, and I have a "WAIMANOLO" dwarf 4-6' tall, and "Caribbean Red" football sized ones comming. I have a wild one that managed to survive the transplant(out of a dozen or so). I have no idea what it will turn out to be.
I think the plants look cool, and they fit the whole tropical theme of out landscape.
