previous answer ... between 100 and 400.

It may depend on the type of papaya, but my little boy and I just counted the seeds in one, and it was 576! We were both surprised that it was that many.
A lot! My little boy just counted the seeds in a papaya, and there were 576! His estimate was 87, and I would have thought that to be accurate. We were both surprised when we started counting, to see how many there actually were.
