No, I don’t like papaya. Tried it this morning for the first time. It tastes like rubbing alcohol. Not that I drink rubbing alcohol, but somehow it just reminded me of it. Sort of a fermented taste, but not in a good way.
I guess others say they don’t like it as well, so I don’t think it’s just me.
ETA: hmm, I wonder if it was slightly un-ripe
One reply said “If it smells sort of like a petroleum byproduct, it’s not ripe and you don’t want to eat it”
