Papaw

Coles, Bentley Western Australia
Last few weeks I went to Coles with my sister. And I saw this fruit...papaya...err nope..it is clearly written yellow papaw. I thought it might be the same fruit so called papaya but with a different names. I did some reading about it and there is literature claimed papaw is another name for papaya.
The scientific name of papaya is Carica papaya L whereas the common name is Betik - Malaysia, Mamao - Brazil, Papaw or paw paw - Australasia and tree melon (mugua) - China.
Somehow there is another literature trying to distinguish between papaw and papaya.
Papaw -Distinct yellow flesh and tends to be a larger fruit
Papaya - Orange to red flesh and usually a smaller oval or pear shaped fruit
But my conclusion, papaya is papaw and papaw is papaya...ahaks..to make life easier!
