I'd advise you to plant a hybrid variety that will not grow as tall as the regular papaya trees. Hybrid varieties begin flowering and fruiting faster and the produce is generally better than a normal tree.
Like all fruit bearing plants your papaya plant will also need to be planted in a spot that gets abundant sunlight.
Papaya plants are hardy and can grow in any type of soil. However, it is good to prepare the soil with a mix of organic compost, manure, red soil and sand in equal proportions.
You can feed the plant regularly, but don't overdo it. It is best to use organic fertilizers as opposed to chemical feeds. Feed the plant a little extra during the active growth and blooming period. This will ensure the plant grows sturdy and bears ample fruit.
Papaya plants do well in 14-14-14 fertilizer. This indicates the concentration of Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium in the fertilizer. 14-14-14 fertilizers need to be fed to the plant in less quantity, less frequently. However, other type of fertilizers may also be used.
Nitrogen is required for new growth and is essential for all types of plants.
Phosphorous encourages proper root growth.
Potassium will help the plant produce more flowers and fruits.
There are other trace minerals that the plant will require which can be obtained from using mulch, compost and manure.
Do not over water the plant as it can cause root rot. Check the soil before watering. If the soil at the top is moist do not water. The soil should not be left to dry completely. Remember to keep the soil moist at all times.
