Papaya is such a special fruit!  It is medicine and dinner all in one.

I have been assured that papaya seed is a cure for both diarrhea and constipation.

and have also witnessed the miracle of the green papaya’s milk (used as a topical medicine for relief of the burning feeling due to sea urchin spines in the foot of a friend)

Papaya fruit is a rich source of nutrients such as provitamin A carotenoids, vitamin C, B vitamins, dietary minerals and dietary fibre. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carica_papayaMpaipai

 Papaya’s sweet fruit is such a treat!

One thought on “Papaya

  1. Love papaya! I just learned that the seeds are edible. I feel bad for scraping them out for many years. 😦 I will eat them all the time now.
