    Hey everyone i was curious if anyone has experiencing overwintering papaya trees? i tossed some seed in a small area last year before the frost assuming they all died and i now have 2 papaya trees that are about 2 almost 3 feet tall and considered potting them and bringing them inside but a source i read said they dont take well to being moved or having their roots messed with so i was wondering if there is a way to help it survive in the winter or will it just do like my banana did and die but come back next year?
