What is Martha’s Best Jamaican papaya?
- Grown with care under the warm Jamaican sun, this special papaya is about the size of a softball with uniquely freckled skin. The orange-red flesh has incredible flavor — like a tropical peach. It’s possibly the sweetest “strawberry” papaya you’ve ever tasted.
- Non GMO.
How to Eat
- Enjoy fresh out of hand, or add to fruit salads or smoothie. Cut off the top of the stem end, then half the fruit lengthwise. With a spoon, scoop out and discard seeds. For papaya slices, cut each half lengthwise, then peel each long slice, then cut into bite-size pieces.
- To bring out more flavor, serve with either a squeeze of lime (or key lime) or ripe passion fruit pulp.
- Excellent source of vitamins A and C.
How to Choose
- Freckles and speckles are perfectly normal for this fruit. Green fruit will take up to 1 week to ripen; partially yellow fruit will ripen up quicker.
How to Store
- Ripen at room temperature until at least 75 percent yellow. Refrigerate ripe fruit for up to 3 days.
