In Hawaii, papayas are a staple crop that consumers buy regularly.  It's one that is frequently found in farmers' markets across our state.  The majority of what is sold is GM due to the ringspot virus pressure that remains a problem for many growers across the islands.  There are non-GMO varieties and they are occasionally found at markets.
