I'm sure they will be delicous! Unfortunately, in areas where papaya don't grow outside...many people think they are not a very good tasting fruit. The reason is...in commercial production they pick the fruit too green and even thoug it will turn yellow, orange or red...the taste will just be mediocre at best. When the fruits are allowed to ripen almost fully on the plants...they are sweet as candy.
