Part of the Advances in Disease Vector Research book series (VECTOR, volume 10)


Papaya (Carica papaya L.) is widely grown in tropical and subtropical areas for its edible fruit and delicate taste. The plant grows fast and the fruit can be harvested 8–10 months after transplanting the tree in the field. It continues producing fruit for 2–3 years under normal conditions. The delicious and nutritious fruit contains a popular protease, papain, which helps to digest food for assimilation. The extensive adaption of this plant and wide acceptance of the fruit offer considerable promise for papaya as a commercial crop for local and export purpose. Like banana, pineapple, and mango, papaya is one of the important cash crops in the tropics and subtropics.
