I bought a papaya out of the blue on saturday and was told by my friend to let it sit out on my counter for 3-5 days. I read on the internet that it should get kind of soft and have about a 70% yellow to green ratio. Just wondering what yall know about it. Also, should I put it in the fridge for a little while (about 8 hours) after it ripens? I like my fruit to be cold.
