Knowing When Papaya is Ready to Eat


Papaya is at its peak flavor when the skin has a slight give to your touch. When your papaya is ¾ yellow (and still has some green remaining on the stem end), wash it and cut about ½ inch off the stem end.  Then cut your papaya in half lengthwise.  With a spoon gently remove and discard the seeds (or use the seeds in some recipes, outlined below).  
Your papaya half is ready to spoon out and eat “as is” or add a little lime juice to accent the flavor.  And you might just want to eat the other half as well!
