Besides thai green papaya salad (som tum), what else can I do with green papayas?

We are moving to a new house soon, and there are three papaya trees there absolutely laden with fruit. Trouble is, the offspring and I hate the smell and flavour of them ripe! My partner likes them, but there is no way he is going to get through all of that fruit. It would be a shame for it to go to waste, especially as it's so good for you. I did a google search and am mostly coming up with green papaya salads and a couple of very simple green papaya curries. I'm sure there must be other culinary uses for them, but my searches don't seem to be picking them up.

Thanks in advance for any ideas you might have :)
