Papaya

Papaya: Main Image

Best to Buy

Papaya is delicious all summer long. Choose a ripe fruit that is soft, yellow, and free of black spots. Green, unripe papayas may be thinly sliced for salads or cooked like winter squash.

Prep & Store

Rinse under cool water and cut in half. Remove flesh to use in fruit salads or purée into a thick juice. Quick tip: Papaya skin is not edible but its seeds have a peppery taste and can be crushed or left whole and sprinkled on salads.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Halve a ripe papaya, remove the seeds, and scoop out the fruit with a spoon. Eat plain or dip into vanilla yogurt for a simple, healthy snack.

Nutrition Notes

Papaya is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of folic acid.
