I don't think so. I regularly keep green papaya in my fridge and it has always stayed green. You can eat it that way. It makes a great salad if you shred it and add other veggies like diced tomatoes and shredded carrots. Yum! The traditional dressing is with fish sauce, but you could substitute soy sauce.

The temperature in the cabinet is higher than in refrigerator and fruit tend to ripen faster in hotter temperatures. Those fruits which are placed in refrigerator are at temperature lower than the room temperature and do not ripen that fast

All fruit produce ethylene gas as they ripen. Ethylene also makes fruit ripen in return. A fridge cools and contracts ethylene, while a cabinet does not (Boyles Law).

Tomatoes need sunlight to ripen. The development will be inhibited in the fridge
