Is my papaya tree bisexual?

Papaya (pawpaw)    India (Western region)

I think my papaya tree is bisexual because if it was male then it would be having long stems of flowers at end .. anyone comment . And if it's bisexual when it will fruit .. (it's first time flowering). So it's female or bisexual?

So if it's female , then why it's not giving fruit ..tree is 9-10 months old ..

It must receive pollen from a male or hermaphrodite papaya.

Pratik Dalsania commented,
Sad news for me is there no male or hermaphrodite nearby .. :( . But the flower is male .. I saw today morning .. so tree may be hermaphrodite?

deactivated commented,
If it is a hermaphrodite..it should be able to make fruit by pollenating itself..try hand pollination. If it is just a female with no male around..farmers typically remove the lone female for they will get no fruit from it.
