I heard once that papaya grew so fast you could plant a Papaya and eat
the fruit before you died of starvation

The black seeds are edible and have a sharp, spicy taste.
They are sometimes ground up and used as a substitute for black pepper.

The young leaves of papaya are steamed and eaten like spinach

Papaya is rich in an enzyme called papain, a protease which is useful in tenderizing meat

Papaya is marketed in tablet form to remedy digestive problems.

Green papaya as a folk remedy for contraception

Papaya is frequently used as a hair conditioner
