    I don't think there would be much harm in it, especially after two days. I could be wrong, though.

      If my mum had not cut the tree down, I would have put the two papaya fruits up on ebay for auction. Lol

    I thought a tree struck by lighting burnt. I mean that's what I thought. It caught fire.
    My grandfather was an expert on trees and he used to cut down any tree struck by lightening.

    But I may be wrong.

      The leaves died in an instant . As well as the plants nearby but nothing was on fire though. XD

    If the fruit are sound then of course you can eat them. Lightening is electricity and that doesn't remain in the fruit. If the fruit are undamaged, scoff them.
