Summary: An experiment was establishedto determine the agronomic and commercial potential of ninepapaya hybrids in a region of high rainfall (Pococí region,Limón province). The characteristics determined where fruitsize, total productivity, pulp brix and susceptibility to fruit rotcaused by Colletotrichum gloesporioides. It was determinedthat only one of these hybrids had commercial potential as adessert fruit comparable to the control. One other hybrid hadpotential to be used for industrial purposes.
