50/365 “Papaya Oh Papaya”
Papayas are spherical or pear-shaped fruits that can be as long as 20 inches. The ones commonly found in the market usually average about 7 inches and weigh about one pound. Their flesh is a rich orange color with either yellow or pink hues. Inside the inner cavity of the fruit are black, round seeds encased in a gelatinous-like substance.
Papayas can be used as a food, a cooking aid, and in medicine. The stem and bark are also used in rope production.
