Abstract: Papaya (Carica papaya L.), is a fruit plant that belongs to the family of Caricaceae. The various varieties of papaya have been grown in India differing in their flesh colour, skin colour and size. The Papaya Variety, Red Lady (RL) is normally grown in India with good productivity. The current study was aimed to evaluate the phytochemical components of this variety. Methanolic extract prepared from fresh leaves RL was used for phytochemical component study using single quadrapole GCMS system of Agilent Technology. The Automated Mass Spectral Deconvolution and Identification System (AMDIS) software [National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, USA] was used for target component library (TCL) file generation, which was final report file for study of RL for phytochemical detection. The present GCMS profiling of RL revealed presence of different metabolites.
