Why does papaya look yellow and edible part of water melon red?  

Asked by Topperlearning User | 30th Sep, 2016, 02:13: PM

Expert Answer:

Papayas are yellow due to the presence of carotene and xanthophyll pigments present in the chromoplasts of the fruit pulp.

Watermelon is red due to the anthocyanins pigment present in the chromoplasts in the tissue.
