These papayas are from my garden. I have several trees and they have now started yielding. Papayas are not only tasty but they are filled with goodness - They have several health properties. Some cook them raw specially mixed with spinach and coconut juice to which a masala is added. Papayas grow easily. The only thing they do not like is stagnant water. In the rains therefore one needs to fill the ground with sand where they grow

Wonderful, I was going to buy a pineapple tree. That must be very exciting. I love papaya. Fresh fruit in a smoothie would be very tasty. That's an unusual recipe. Maybe I'll try it one day. Spinach and papya-loaded with nutrients, but the taste- I'm not so sure.

They look very tempting, I too love papayas and have two yielding trees in my garden, but a different larger variety ! One can make salad with half ripe papaya and of course curry with it. I also make papaya jam when many of them ripen at the same time.

i used to love papayas, but fear they jest don't agree with me any longer :( don't reckon i'd e'er cooked 'em with spinach 'fore? dang...wish i could taste such, lol. that's most interestin' to know they dislike wet "feet" 'n sand needs to be put 'round 'em.
