my grandmother planted some papaya and cherimoya seeds in his outdoor enclosure and I'm not sure if these are cool to eat. if not I'll have to dig up the entire area where she placed them.

The fruits are okay occasionally. I have no idea if the seedlings or plants are edible or not.

Can you block that area off?

How big are your tortoises? They will probably eat the trees before they grow all the way lol.

I dont think I know what cherimoya is. But papaya is fine once and awhile. They actually (if they are large) enjoy them green rather then ripe.

ah I see. thanks. I can't block it off cause he placed it in prime spots. I think it'll be fine.

WOW! This information made me understand something, and it is that I never knew before.

I just wanted to make sure you understand this is the SULCATA forum. Some tortoises CAN and DO eat more fruit than a sulcata.
