FAQs about red papayas

If your red papayas are green and hard, keep them on your kitchen counter out of direct sunlight. Most papayas will ripen at room temperature within a week or so. Once they are ripe, you can store your red papayas in the refrigerator for up to five days. Eat completely yellow papayas within two days. 

Cut papayas or papaya puree should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge and used within a week. Because frozen papaya becomes mushy after thawing, it works best in smoothies or as a fruity ice cube.

Papayas are one of several latex cross-reactive fruits, including kiwis, bananas, and apples. These fruits have proteins similar to those in latex, resulting in allergic reactions in up to 50% of latex-allergic people. Reactions can occur when the fruit is touched, smelled, or eaten. If you are allergic to latex, check with your doctor to see if you can safely add red papayas to your diet.
