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.
