Papaya seedlings are created by planting a papaya tree seed in a plant pot with a trowel. Once watered, these saplings will grow into an Papaya sapling, which can then be planted in a fruit tree patch. You must have 57 farming to plant the seeds. Once the seedling is in the patch, you can pay the nearby farmer 10 pineapples to protect it. The farmer will accept noted pineapples.
