(The papaya is in the foreground and the kabocha squash is the green looking pumpkin.)
Last week I bought my first ever papaya and it was a bust. I didn’t know how to tell if it was ripe. I was guessing it needed be tender like an avocado, but all of the papayas in the store were very firm. I went ahead and bought it, chopped it up and blah! It was super crunchy and tasted like nothing.
If you have any advise on picking papayas, please let me know. They are a super food, so I want to eat some everyday.
