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.
