1/2 of a green papaya (my papayas are football sized). Seeded skinned sliced about 1/4 to 3/8 thick, I put a 1/4 cup flour. A heavy 1/2 cup sugar a large spoon of cinnamon mounded.   Mixed all that together.
Then I cheated used Pillsbury pie crust brushed it down with butter on the inside1 to 2 squares of it. The papaya filled the crust slightly mounded. Then i brushed the inside of the top crust with some of that butter. Cut holes in the crust. Bake 350 about 1 hour till crust lightly brown. Its kind of like apple pie. It smooth on flavor. Took one to work they liked it. I ate the first one it would be better with vanilla ice cream. They are just so easy to grow.

    Green Papaya is underutilized. My wife makes a Filipino version of chicken soup (tinola) that uses green papaya cut in chunks and boiled in the soup until soft.  Thai style green papaya salad is awesome too. Never heard of it in a pie though. Sounds interesting.

    I am going to try candied and dried. My one plant with 20+ on it is a Hawaiian papaya they are football sized. I have 4 others making papayas to. It only takes 2 years from when the plant starts. tp easy to grow not to.

    Slice ripe Papaya put on wax paper on cookie sheet,After freezing put in ziploc in freezer! Eat a piece or two when doing yard work for a refreshing pick me up. So many ways to utilize the weed from seed..

    Green papaya also makes a nice relish (condiment) called achara. It is pickled along with carrots, onions, raisins, peppers and ginger. Great on grilled fish.
