Physical and chemical changes during maturation of the local and Solo variety of papaya were studied. No change was observed in total acidity, though there was a slight increase in the pH of both types. Starch content decreased while total sugar, reducing sugar and ascorbic acid increased. A sensory panel preferred Solo, confirming that it is suitable for the local and international markets.
