Getting to know the Papaya better

Since last February 25th Naranjas al Día has started to distribute the best tropical fruit coming directly from the Canary Islands.

It is not only possible BUY ORANGES but you can also choose from the best tropical fruit. Canarian bananas, avocados and papayas.

Today's blog post is to understand and know a little better the fruit that gives the papaya, a tropical tree between 1.8 and 2.5 meters high native to Central America and can also be found in countries like Africa and Asia. This peculiar plant has a single trunk without branches and at the top forms a crown of rounded leaves where we can find the papaya.

The papaya, or "fruit bomb" as it is known in Cuba for its similarity to the same, has an oval shape and a smooth texture. It is fleshy and has an important size since a single piece exceeds 500 grams and can weigh up to 2 kilos. Of yellow colour mixed with green tones, inside stands out its orange or reddish pulp. In the center are accumulated all its black seeds.

Its flavour is unique and very sweet. A taste so different from other fruits that it is very appreciated when making desserts, juices, yoghurts, fruit salads and ice creams.

In addition, papaya is one of the fruits with the most medicinal properties, so much so that in Costa Rica and Mexico it is known as "the fruit of the tree of good health". But we will explain this in another post.

A unique fruit that you can now buy at Naranjas al Día.

Enjoy the best tropical fruit.
