Papaya is one of the fruit commodities that has various properties, especially in the health sector. Health nutrients that affect the content in papaya are chemical properties. The chemical and morphological characteristics of the fruit in papaya experience many changes during the maturity process. This study aims to determine the chemical and morphological properties and organoleptic tests on some papaya genotypes. The design used was Randomized Completely Design with non-factorial pattern. The research treatment of papaya genotype was 6 levels, namely (USK 7 x USK 6), (USK 6 x USK 7), (USK 4 x USK 7), (USK 7 x USK 4), (USK 1 x USK 7), (USK 6 x USK 4) with 3 replications for the analysis of chemical properties, morphology and organoleptic tests. The results showed that each genotype had a very significant effect on the chemical and morphological characteristics of papaya. USK 1 x USK 7 is the best genotype that can be used as a superior new variety because it has a sweet taste with dissolved solids total is 9.83o Brix, the color of fruit pulps is red and bright, has  medium size, and USK 6 x USK 4 has good vitamin C level is 77.04%.
