Conventional Hawaii Papaya

Papaya - "the fruit of angels"

Papaya is a spherical or pear-shaped fruit with an orange, sometimes greenish color, and yellow or pink flesh. These fruits have black, round seeds, they are edible, although slightly bitter.

Ripe papaya should be refrigerated and eaten within a day or two. If you buy an unripe and hard fruit, you can put it in a paper bag, waiting for it to get its full flavor.

Papaya is an excellent source of vitamin C, folic acid and potassium. In addition, it contains the power of vitamin E, vitamin A and vitamin K.

Papayas can be used in many different ways. We can prepare fruit salads from them, take out the seeds and after sprinkling with lemon, eat the pulp with a spoon or prepare a cocktail. If we decide to combine papaya with other fruits, we must do so just before serving, because it causes other fruits to soften (due to the enzymes in it). It is worth knowing that papaya seeds give sauces and salads an interesting, spicy taste, so it is worth including them in your culinary activities.
