Other past characters have described or talked about this fruit; Christopher Columbus, he called it "the fruit of the angels", while Vasco De Gama named it "fruit of eternal youth", Marco Polo instead verified its properties against scurvy, widespread at the time among the crews at sea. Moreover from the Maya the papaya plant was known as the "tree of life", then with the passing of the centuries the term papaya has assumed different and curious names also because of different uses and traditions. - • In the Caribbean it is called "fruta de bomba" - • Mexicans call it "melon copote" - • In Brazil, instead, "mamaole"
