What Is Papaya? Papaya is a fruit that comes from the sunny tropical lands of Mexico. You can find it's sometimes called 'angel fruit'. The legend says we have Christopher Columbus to thank for that as when he discovered this delicious plant in the lands of the Caribbean in 1526, he called it 'the fruit of the angels'. Since that time, papaya has travelled all over the world, but due to the plant's love for warmth and humidity, it can only grow in tropical climates. The papaya tree is now cultivated all around the equator line, with India, Indonesia, and Brazil being the leading suppliers of the fruit. Unfortunately, this means that to the residents of northern (or southern) regions this delicious food remains an exotic treat. As fresh fruits don't keep long, few people can enjoy them regularly.
