Is green papaya the same as papaya?

Green papaya is actually unripe papayas. The nutritional value of green papaya depends on its ripeness. Unripe papayas are higher in vitamin C than ripe ones because they contain more antioxidants that help fight free radicals in the body. It has a mild flavor, but it’s not as sweet as its yellow counterpart and therefore more suitable to be used as an ingredient such as green papaya soup.
