Maybe they all are: One must ask, "How much cubed papaya is in one cup?" If she assumes one cup is always an 8-ounce cup, there still remains a variable or two. So, what are the variables? One is the size of the cubes... the smaller the cubes, the more papaya and the less air space will be in the cup (thus more calories). Another variable may be the type of papaya such as the variety, ripeness, water content, etc...
