Papaya is rich in betocarotene, potassium, vitamin C, B vitamins, and antioxidants. It’s great straight from the rind, chopped and mixed with other tropical fruits, and blended into a smoothie, or—even better—a cocktail. You can even use the peppery seeds in salads and other recipes.
But mostly—IMHO—papaya is just so sexy looking when cut open that I’m compelled to use some to decorate my boho home to keep that other (you know) vibe going.
