They are used green in Thai cooking quicksilver, here's a link for Thai salad. I think a few Asian countries use them in cooking. No good for juicing but good for tenderising tough steak, marinate the steak in slices of green pawpaw for 10/15 minutes.

It seems they are used mostly to make salads,

We are happy little Vegemites, happy as can be

Papaya is also called mountain pawpaw so that may be the source of confusion in the common names. Paw paw native to the US <Asimina triloba> is the temperate cousin of a group of mostly tropical plants native to the Americas. Its other common name is custard apple.
