How to Choose a Non-GMO Papaya

When you buy them from the grocery store, they’ll be green. So, they’ll have to ripen for 5-10 days.
Wait until it’s a nice yellow color.
You want to make sure that it’s soft to the touch. Sometimes they’ll get little spots on it, that’s okay. Just cut around that spot.
How to Cut a Papaya
Take a nice, sharp knife and carefully cut down the center.
You’ll see a lot of seeds inside. You can scoop those out. These seeds have a peppery flavor, but they have their own nutritional properties. Feel free to take a spoonful while you are cutting your papaya.
Once you have scooped out your seeds, you can just take a spoonful and eat as is.
It’s almost like the texture of a melon. You can add honey or lime. You can use it in smoothies or fruit salads.
It’s a really tasty and healing fruit.
Eating a half of one papaya of these a day is amazing! The health benefits of papaya are countless!
