Ripe Papaya

Scientific Name: Carica Papaya


Papaya originated from the tropics of the Americas, probably from Southern Mexico and neighbouring Central America. It has now become widespread in tropical countries and has become one of the staples in everyday diet in these areas but is considered eotic in many parts of the world. Normally yellowish green in colour when raw, it becomes amber to orange once ripe and becomes soft to the touch. It can get as long as 15-45 cm and 10-30 cm in diameter. The flesh of the papaya is edible excluding its seeds and skin. Although the seeds can be consumed, they are bitter in taste. When ripe, it can be consumed uncooked or can be used in any other preparation.


Ripe Papaya, if not stored properly, can go bad very quickly. To save it from turning into mush, put the whole papaya in a plastic bag without peeling or cutting it and put it in the refrigerator. This way you can store it upto 7 days. For storing it longer, peel the papaya, dispose off the seeds, cut the flesh into pieces and put it in a container or plastic bag which is designed for freezer. Cover the container or plastic bag with a 30% sugar solution and it should last upto 10 months.

Taste & Use:

Ripe papaya is mostly sweet in taste with a bit of muskiness to it. However, if it is over-ripe, the muskiness becomes strong and it does not taste as good as before. Ripe papayas can be consumed uncooked after discarding its skin and seeds. You can add some lime or lemon juiced for added flavour or you can use ripe papaya in salad, bake it with bread, puree it, make a smoothie or juice with it, or you can use it as a dessert or as one of the components in a dessert as it is sweet in taste.
