The HPIA has the non-exclusive patent rights to propagate “Rainbow” papaya seed. The seed contains the gene to protect the papaya plant from “PRV” (Papaya Ringspot Virus). It is an F1 cross between Kapoho Solo and the Sun-Up varieties. It produces an orange fleshed fruit typically just over one pound in weight that produces excellent fruit in the district of Puna on Hawaii Island.
