as far as a fert.,I have been spraying with some fish emulsion and humus.I prepared the soil with a very high amount of Nitrogen and it took off.

Seems to me you would be better off potting it now so it has time to recover while you still have good weather. Grow it as a house plant if you have the room.

Its amazing how fast it growes! Unfortunally I ll have to leave it inground and will try to protect it somehow. In a mean time is there any good source for Dwarf Papaya seed? Have to prepare few seedlings for the next Spring if I loose this one.

I had one in a large pot. As with most plants overwintered inside, it was very prone to spider mites. It did well for 2 years but never fruited for me. Good luck, Ante.
