We have a papaya tree that is probably 15 ft tall and blew over during the last hurricane. We’ve picked all the fruit and are going to cut the top 6ft off and right the tree. Will it continue to have fruit? There are several branches lower down on the truck that are doing well.

Yes, your tree has a good chance to recover and produce fruit again, especially since it has some remaining branches. Just make sure it doesn't get too heavy and/or lopsided while it is re-establishing itself in an upright position.
