Papaya: The fruit is ripe when it feels soft and the skin is amber to orange in color. Some believe that the fruit is similar to taste to pineapple or pear, but more mild and not as tart. The papaya is grown in a tropical climate. Several countries now grow these fruits as long as their climate is accommodating.

Papayas are used in some folk medicine practices all over the world. Women in India use green papaya as a folk remedy for contraception and abortion. Papaya is also used in conditioner, but should be used in small amounts. If you are harvesting the fruit yourself you should be cautious to make sure the fruit is ripe, because un-ripped fruit produces a latex fluid that can cause an irritation or allergy in some people.
