Hi TBD,
My best guess is that your tree is female and those flowers are not being pollinated, which would be necessary for the fruit to form.

There is a good PDF file here (http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/oc/freepubs/pdf/AEC-339.pdf) which gives more detailed info, as well as some other possibilities that can cause failure to fruit.

You are most welcome, I hope that your papaya will reward you with yummy fruits one day before too long - maybe it's as simple as finding a "mate" so that the bees can do their work.

Always happy to chat plants with you.
