Papaya is a tropical fruit. You might have tried it dried covered in sugar. But have you tried it fresh? In the global economy we are getting the opportunity to try these exotic fruits.
How do I buy 1. Typically the Papaya is green. Buy one that is unblemished. Let it turn yellow. At that point it should be soft. Cut it in half and scoop out the seeds. Then treat it like a cantaloupe, cut it in quarters and then start slicing it away from the outer skin.
Cut up the papaya and place in a storage container and place in fridge. to chill.
