Papaya is a tropical fruit that's popular because of its high nutritive and medicinal value. One large papaya is packed with 235 milligrams of vitamin C - that's two to three times more than your recommended daily allowance -- and is an excellent source of vitamin A, potassium, and calcium.
- Easy to eat - just cut like a melon, scoop out the seeds, and enjoy. The seeds of the papaya are edible but have a bitter, peppery taste. Using a spoon, it is possible to scoop out the soft flesh of the fruit.
- Serve papaya strips with thin slices of prosciutto as an appetizer.
Drizzle lightly with lime juice.
- Organic & grown in the UAE, enjoy the fresh taste at home.
