Papaya is a soft-wooded sparsely branched tree. They characteristically have palmately lobed or compound leaves; small, unisexual flowers; and separate male and female plants (dioecious). All parts of the plants contain milky latex in special latex-producing cells.  The fruits, which vary in shape from spherical to elongate and which may weigh as much as 9 kg (20 lb), are eaten fresh as breakfast fruit or in salads or desserts. Papaya is also exploited for its latex, which contains papain, a proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme used in meat tenderizers. Papaya is loaded with digestive enzymes which are beneficial in the digestion of proteins.  Nutrients such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, and C are found abundantly in the fruit.  Papaya is good for heartburn, indigestion and inflammatory bowel disorders.  The milk from the green fruit aids healing of ulcers and also regulates blood pressure.  Young fruit is cut and rubbed on ringworm affected areas of the skin to produce bleeding and removal of fungus.  Decoctions of the root of the male plant have been traditionally used for oliguria, flu, venereal diseases and constipation.
