It has a proteolytic enzyme that has meat tenderizer type properties.
It can survive for long periods after picking. After reaching full size, the fruit can take as long as two months to ripen but this can be speeded up by exposing them to ethylene gas which in a household situation can be achieved by keeping them enclosed with bananas or apples. They can be kept 4-6 months in cold storage.
