Hawaiian Papayas

Hawaiian Papayas


Hawaii's papayas are grown in the rich volcanic soil of the eastern end of the island of Hawaii. These papayas have glossy and bright yellow skin, are pear-shaped and weigh about a pound. Their fragrant flesh ranges in colour from golden-yellow to red-orange.

Hawaiian papayas are sweet and the flavor is described as a blend of mango, peach and banana. Edible black seeds inhabit the center cavity and they have a crunchy, peppery taste.
