Perhaps you could upload a picture of your pawpaws and mention the variety.

If it is a fungus that is causing it then you can pick them and place them in hot water that is about 50 degrees for 15-20 mins and this can reduce the incidence of the disease causing them to rot. Perhaps pick 2 and do a comparison one with the water and one without and upload the pictures for us to see what the effect is.

Another option is to try some other varieties of pawpaw that might work better in your climate and soil type. Experimenting is key.

Thanks for the advice I will try the hot water.
No photos at the moment as I have eaten the ok ones and the rotten ones are in the bin. I pick them when they are almost ripe and put them inside to finish off, that is when they start to go mouldy. Sometimes I eat them when still a bit firm before the mould sets in.

I bought a sous vide cooker online from Kogan Australia. It is a hot water cooker and you can set it between 0 -99 degrees C. It can be used also for chasing out viruses etc from such as banana pups. The temperature is very accurate. Hey, it can even be used for fancy cooking where accuracy is required. Food is normally first wrapped by vacuum sealing it in a bag, but the mangos are probably put in unwrapped.
