I like this article because it talks about how the entire fruit is useful including the skin and seeds which most people throw away.

I would take a guess that when we buy papaya digestive enzymes they are from the leaves.

Also, the lycopene in papaya is synergistic with green tea. The article mentions a more powerful health benefit when the diet has both tea and papaya but didn't explain it.

Thanks mommysunshine good article.
Sounds like a good all round fruit, the fact that you can eat all of it as well as leaves.
you can also buy a Paw Paw (as it is known here) ointment that is very good for healing skin sores.
