How to Ripen Papaya

Last updated on November 27, 2009

Want to know how to ripen papaya? Here are several methods.

The best way to ripen a slightly green papaya is to place it in a paper bag and place it in the refrigerator until it is ripe.

You can also place an apple or a banana in the bag to make them ripen faster.

Once it has turned mostly yellow it has ripened. Take it out of the bag at this point so it doesn’t get too ripe.
