A papaya seedling is created by sowing a papaya tree seed in a plant pot filled with soil with a gardening trowel, granting 1.2 Farming experience. Once watered, it will turn into a papaya seedling (w), which will grow into a papaya sapling. However, while the seedling is growing into a sapling, it is possible to salvage the seed from the plant pot, granting another 1.2 Farming experience. Salvaging the seed can fail, but uncommonly. A papaya sapling requires level 57 Farming to plant in a fruit tree patch.
