Default Royal Star Papaya

We went a little NE of Central Florida (Keystone Heights) last weekend. Stopped at a roadside produce stand and one of the things I bought was a Royal Star papaya fruit (wasn't grown local). It was about the size of the Caribbean Red (Maradol) that we can get in stores, shape was a little rounder at the ends than the CR's, almost symmetrical end to end.
Cut it up yesterday and the flesh was a very nice red-orange color (darker than I remember the CR's) and the taste was really sweet (sweeter than I remember the CR's).


I went to the website Royal Star Papaya and they state that it is a "natural hybrid and a proprietary seed variety that is distinctly different from other papayas that are widely sold throughout the USA" and that it is grown near the Pacific coast of Mexico (Colima).

I kept the seeds and was wondering if I planted them what the chances are of getting the same fruit result since it is some type of hybrid or something? I know my backyard's conditions don't quite match coastal Mexico.

Any thoughts?

Thanks..DM

I think you can get the same fruit as one you ate.
