    It’s not subtropical. It’s Mediterranean and Northern California , mostly northeastern and northwestern California, are temperate and partially continental. You are in the central Central Valley. Btw. Blueberries aren’t tropical.

    Figs can fruit well on their new growth all the way up to Canada dude. They would thrive well in the bay area. Ice cream bananas and satsuma mandarins survive the winters where I'm at in zone 7… not zone 9. Don't ever doubt that something can grow in a certain area. I have an edulis passion fruit vine survive outside UNPROTECTED here last year too. It was crazy it didn't get below 30… But all I'm saying is find out for yourself, don't ever just go by the book

    I would love to be on your YouTube channel. I am working on my eligible garden full of exotic and rare fruit trees. The fruit tree should be ready in a year or two.

    Manila and Baileys Mango grow in the bay area. check out "Mangos in Northern California?" here on utube. Maridol do better with the bay area cold winters. I and others have gotten them to grow. 2 winters so far and 3' tall. Not fast.
    White Sapotes,Ice Cream banana's,Dragon fruit- my neighbor has a big trellis of them that bear in the late summer.
    Once you get a Mango into the ground? Its off and running. In pots they stay frost sensitive. A warning.

    My lowes special ordered some papaya and mango tree's fruiting , to be on hold for me, yet some how by the time I was informed only 1 papaya tree was left. lol , last spring I did get it but it lasted until just last month. it was much smaller and stocky.

    My papaya died during the second week of January. A postmortem showed root rot probably worked in tandem with a couple of bad freezes to kill them. The passion fruit showed zero cold damage; the lemon guava showed zero cold damage; the rajapuri in the front lost all its leaves to the freezes, though it began regrowing in early Feb. My avocado survived the winter, too, though it didn't thrive (too wet). I've added a pineapple guava and floss silk tree, so we'll see how next winter pans out.

    It's about time the big box stores start to provide us with some tropical fruit trees. I am starting a tropical fruit tree orchard in my backyard. Check out the videos on my channel.

    I live in Solano County, my Lowe's sold me one of these papaya plants about three months ago. We just moved back to NorCal after six years in Santa Barbara County. Back in SB, I grew avocados, limes, bananas, and passion fruit. We're trying it all up here in Solano County, so we'll see what the winter brings. In addition to the papaya, we've planted rajapuri bananas, lemon guavas, passion fruit, and an avocado. The papaya hasn't looked too happy since the temps started dropping to high 30s.

    man this is so cheap, in israel a cape goosberry plant, with no fruits or flowers, has cost me 10$ without any chance bringing it back if it dies, and it almost died.

    Manila mangoes are cold hardy to 9a if protected from frost and if protected it will fruit as far north as eureka…

    Can i grow papayas in the central bay area (ex:central vallejo)and i live in a subtropical and dry climate,east from my house is a SUBTROPICAL forest and a small creek,i live in a area like south vallejo were frost in the winter not common but not rare.Can i grow papayas here?

    papayas grow super tall, and some makes tons of fruit

    One more thing too: bananas will suffer leaf burn from winter frost in inland areas like mine, but that doesn't mean they can't stay outdoors even without protection. (In coastal areas like SF, they will stay evergreen). The trunk is much hardier than the leaves, so the plants just continue growing in the spring where they left off. We view them as deciduous, and we just let them do their thing, and cut off the leaves if and when they get cold burn. I do see them fruit in San Jose and Oakland.

    So where is this store? You mentioned it's too cool for figs? We've grown really really great figs (and pomegranates, both of which need a lot of heat) in Walnut Creek (Bay Area) for years.Are you more coastal? Also, we do grow strawberry guavas without protection, and the bush is huge and full of wonderful fruit. I think putting things in the ground is much nicer than a greenhouse, if you are mild enough. We tend to get a couple of nights per year around 28-30, otherwise we get light frost

    The better papaya variety for NorCal is the babaco, which looks the same but is more cold tolerant.

    Those were papaya trees that I saw at lowes. They are not Pawpaw trees. I do have some pawpaw trees (slow growers), which are native to north america. They are related to chermoyias, and look like a mango and have a banana/mango flavor. Our friends down under in Australia refer to papayas as pawpaws to make matters more confusing.

    The Pawpaw is often called papaya they grow wild in West Virginia. I am starting Kiwi from seed here also and they do well in northern climate.

    if you were to separate those papaya trees, they wouldn't do so well. you'd have to cut all of them but one, then transplant the whole thing.
