Eat Papaya – Here’s How

Eat papaya: this is how you get the pulp

Here we will show you how to eat papaya properly.

  1. Wash the papaya thoroughly and then cut it in half.
  2. The black seeds in the middle are edible, but not to everyone’s taste. It is best to remove them with a spoon.
  3. Rinse the fruit once and then add some lemon juice to the papaya halves, if you like. The lemon rounds off the taste of the papaya well.
  4. You can now spoon out the ripe papaya like a kiwi.

Papaya: Here’s what you should know about the fruit

Everything you need to know about papayas can be read briefly in the following points.

  • Papayas are oval in shape and the flesh is usually light orange to pink in color. For longer shelf life, store the fruit in the refrigerator at best.
  • The size varies greatly depending on origin, season, and variety. Papayas can weigh from half a kilo to six kilos.
  • When ripe, the fruit has a pleasantly sweet taste. The fruit tastes best between May and October when it is in season.
  • With its high vitamin C content, the papaya is a real vitamin bomb and is often called a super fruit. Just 100 grams of the pulp covers the daily requirement of around 100 milligrams for an adult.

If you want to cut the papaya into bite-sized pieces, here are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Peel the papaya generously, because the flesh directly under the peel is often rather bitter.
  • Then cut the papaya in half as described above and then chop it into bite-sized pieces.
  • Combine the exotic fruit in the fruit salad with different types of melon and grapes, for example.
