Sugar composition of papaya (Carica papaya L.) during fruit development was determined by gas-liquid chromatography. Sucrose made up less than 18% of the total sugar content 110 days after anthesis and increased rapidly to make up 80% of the sugars about 135 days after anthesis. The dramatic changes in sugar content and composition at 110 days after anthesis corresponded with the commencement of color changes of seed and pulp.
