The title says it all! This is our first papaya and I think Ryan liked it more then I did! We will buying them again, especially considering 1 cup of papaya has only 55 calories, no fat, 3 g of fiber and almost 150% of your daily Vitamin C! According to NutritionData, it is also is a good source of Potassium, Vitamin A, and Folate.
So please join us on our papaya adventure and next time you see them at the grocery store maybe you’ll pick one up!
We ended up making an AWESOME smoothie!
Oh! And according to WHFoods, Papaya’s seeds are edible, although their peppery flavor is somewhat bitter. Unfortunately, I threw mine away before trying them. :~( next time.
