It was first domesticated in Mesoamerica, within modern-day southern Mexico and Central America.

PAPAYA shouldn’t be given credit for bearing the fruits as it is the MAMAYA that does :D

If there’s fruit called papaya, why not fruit called mamaya? Then they can form a folk rock vocal fruit called the Mamayas and the Papayas.
