Container size for papaya

DHLCALMay 4, 2014

I am thinking about growing papaya in a container. What size would the container need to be? I have a few 15 gallon ones sitting around but suspect that they are too small.

I've actually seen the tr dwarf hovey fruiting in a half whiskey barrel.

I've fruited a regular size papaya in half of a 55 gallon drum (plastic). Not even 1/10 as productive as the ones in the ground though.
