New varieties of papaya can be obtained from the exploration of germplasms, conventional breeding, genetic engineering and the introduction of new cultivars from overseas. This study was conducted at Sumani Experimental Field of the Indonesian Tropical Fruit Research Institute from April 2006 to March 2007. This study aimed at characterizing papaya accessions based on their morphological characters listed as descriptor published by IBPGR (1988). The plant materials used were 3 accessions, of papaya introduced from India, namely SR-01, SR-02, SR-03, and 1 local variety. From three papaya accessions observed, SR-03 produced ideal fruit size (840 g), sweet (13.21o Brix of total soluble solid), firm flesh texture, 25.20 mm of pulp thickness, orange to red flesh colour. This accession was promising for further development.
