Papai = papaya; mapapai = pawpaws???

Pawpaw and papaw are other words for papaya.

In Australia it depends on which state you come from, whether you call that delicious fruit 'pawpaw' or 'papaya'.

Where is it called "papaya" in Australia? I've only heard it called pawpaw.

Also, to me, it tastes like turpentine or kerosene.
