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 youâ€™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.
