the papaya is now cultivated in most tropical countries.
The petioles and stems may develop dark green greasy streaks and in time become shorter.
The ringspots are circular, C-shaped markings that are darker green than the fruit itself.
Leaves show thin, irregular, dark-green lines around the borders and clear areas around the veins.
The more severely affected leaves are irregular and linear in shape.
The virus can infect the fruit at any stage of its maturity.
Fruits as young as 2 weeks old have been spotted with dark-green ringspots about 1 inch in diameter.We have a zero-tolerance policy against illegal pornography.We do not own, produce or host the videos displayed on this website.Unusually for such large plants, the trees are dioecious.The flowers are 5-parted and highly dimorphic, the male flowers with the stamens fused to the petals.For the Eastern North American tree (and fruit) called "pawpaw", see Asimina triloba.
