I had some papaya before but not from Hawaii. Mom says this is sweeter.
Papaya tree is very common here in Hawaii. Many have a papaya tree on their front and back yard. It is a large tree with a single stem that can grow up to 16 – 33 feet tall. It’s leaves are spirally arranged that is confined mainly on the top of the trunk. The leaves can grow up to 20-28 inches. The papaya fruit is ripe when it feels soft and the skin changed to a yellow orange color.
There are 2 kinds of Papaya
1) The Rainbow Papaya is a bright yellow orange.
2) The Sunred Papaya is a pink fleshed papaya.
Papaya fruit is sweet and high in Vitamin C.
The skin and seeds are not edible.
Mom got some Rainbow Papaya … smells good.
DELISH! Tasty, Can I have some more … ?

Sugar you have a very long tongue, such a distinct advantage when there is lots of juice to enjoy. Hope you get to enjoy more papaya soon.

Where the heck is this place Hawaii anyway? I am so jealous. All it has done here lately is rain.
We don’t have papayas here – just some in the store…but those must be AMAZING right off the tree! You sure look like you are enjoying them!
PS I enjoyed learning all about them, thanks!

Love that tongue Sugar. Excellent capture by your mom too.
Love papaya too and have had it in Hawaii. A very special treat indeed.
Have a woof woof day Sugar. My best to your mom. 🙂
Your happy tongue shows how good it must taste.
Oh I love Papaya! But I swear it doesn’t taste the same on the mainland. You have to have in Hawaii. Love your photo of you licking your chops.
Sugar, Between your posts on life in paradise and Val’s(my girlz got paws), you are making me want to jump a plane again and head back over to visit. Just don’t tell my hubby or Hunter because he might move us over there. Love seeing life through your eyes. Sending waves of aloha back to you today.

You lucky girl! I fell in love with papaya on a trip to Acapulco.
I didn’t know what it was. Is it a peach? No, not as sweet and it has
a different texture. I finally had to ask somebody! YUM!
Thank you for the Tasty Tuesday!
That sure looks yummy!
Lovies, Miss Mindy
Oh that rainbow papaya looks delish Sugar! The trees are very unique looking. It must be heaven to be around all this locally grown fruit! 🙂

I love papaya!!
Yum!! Well, Mom would say that. Me? Not so much. But I like the idea of a Tasty Tuesday (even if I’m a day late). I’m going to get my taster on for next week.
Kolchak & Jodi says
the Mama is not much of a fan of papaya, but me and the Felix like it, so she buys it just for us. I bet Hawaiian Papaya is really tasty!
