Papaya: everything you may want to know

The World's Healthiest Foods is a non-profit organization that develops and shares information about the benefits of healthy eating. Its web site is a great source to learn health benefits, how to select and store foods, nutrtional information and a lot more.

Here's a blurb from their web site's
papaya section.

Deliciously sweet with musky undertones and a soft, butter-like consistency, it is no wonder the papaya was reputably called the "fruit of the angels" by Christopher Columbus. Once considered quite exotic, they can now be found in markets throughout the year. Although there is a slight seasonal peak in early summer and fall, papaya trees produce fruit year round.
