Benefits of Eating Papaya

To harvest the fruit, hold the papaya with one hand and twist it by it's stem. This is the easiest way to pick the fruits than by using shears. Wear gloves if you are sensitive with the white sap. The fruits that I picked weigh about 5-6 lbs which I all gave away to friends. Cut it open and you'll see this sweet reddish-orange fruit....oh, so yummy!

Did you know that....

Papaya has an enzyme called papain that is used as a meat tenderizer.
They make masks from papaya fruits that's supposed to soften the skin. And nutritionists promote papaya consumption to aid in digestion and as a superior source of vitamins A and C.
