Christmas in Miami, Fields of Papaya Trees Bear Fruit In the Redlands

Happy Holidays from Miami-Dade County. Check out our Christmas tree.

Down south in the Redland, fields of papaya trees are bearing fruit. We shot this picture yesterday on the side of Quail Roost Drive.

Papaya, or la fruta bomba, as it is sometimes known, is a fruit grown in tropical climates all over the world.
