Costa Rica produces three new varieties of papaya

Production costs are down considerably

This week, Costa Rican researchers announced the launch of three varieties of papaya seed. These will be delivered to the country’s producers, so they can start planting. The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock pointed out that, thanks to the genetic modifications, two of these new varieties will reduce production costs for farmers. The work was carried out by professionals from the University of Costa Rica and the National Institute for Innovation and Transfer of Agricultural Technology (INTA).

The Suerre variety is described as a small fruit for individual consumption. The fruit of this seed has an approximate weight of half a kilogram, good firmness, little cavity, thick pulp, orange color and good sweetness.

The other two varieties (INTA-UCR 6514 and INTA-UCR-H39) are more suitable for industry. They have characteristics such as greater weight and color between orange and red. The first of these can be used for processing, while the second is recommended for hash.
