Plants come in three sexes: "male," "female," and "hermaphrodite."
The male produces only pollen, never fruit. The female will produce small, inedible fruits unless pollinated.
The hermaphrodite can self-pollinate since its flowers contain both male stamens and female ovaries. 

Papayas can be used as a food, a cooking aid and in traditional medicine.
The stem and bark may be used in rope production.

The black seeds of the papaya are edible and have a sharp, spicy taste. They are sometimes ground and used as a substitute for black pepper.
