Papaya, scientifically known as Carica papaya is believed to have originated in the Tropics of the Americas and Southern Mexico. Our Papayas are locally sourced here in South Florida where we come across many varieties with different sizes, color and shape.
Green Papaya is a delicacy in many tropical countries and is very popular in Green Papaya Salads. Papaya contains antioxidants, including carotenoids which can neutralize free radicals. Papain enzyme in papaya may help to ease digestion and aid in constipation. Papaya seeds are known to have anti-parasitic properties.
