One of just a handful of truly heirloom, non-GMO papaya varieties that comes true from seed! Similar to a melon in flavor, Caribbean Red papaya is juicy and sweet with a fragrant but not a musky aroma. This fruit’s reddish insides contains papain, an enzyme which helps digestion. Enjoy: Spoonful, slice or chunks, Caribbean Red papayas are a great snack and perfect addition to any salad – fruit or leaf. Don’t stop there: blend into exotic smoothies, chop into a veggie topper or slice and add a creamy topping to this fruit for a dessert.
14-1/2 tsp of small pea like seeds per packet.
