Odd leaves

Papaya (pawpaw)    None Given

Why are small leaves growing from the center of a big leaf? What type of papaya plant is this? It's fruiting now, can the fruits be eaten. There are quite a number of flowers and the plant is only a meter in height. Can anyone assist me ?

Thanks David. At the moment plant looks healthy. Will observe fruit growing
about 3 years ago.
