Townsville's Favourite

Papaya

Our papayas are a tropical treat, bursting with juicy, sweet flesh that’s perfect for any time of day. Each bite offers a delightful combination of sweetness and a hint of muskiness that will transport your taste buds to a sunny paradise. Our papayas are grown with care, ensuring they are packed with flavour and nutrients. Enjoy them fresh, in smoothies, or even in a refreshing papaya salad.

Choosing the perfect papaya is easy with a few tips. Look for skin that’s a mix of yellow and green. A ripe papaya will be mostly yellow and yield slightly to gentle pressure. Avoid any fruit that’s overly soft or has too many blemishes. If the fruit is still green, leave it at room temperature to ripen for a few days. Once ripe, store it in the fridge to keep it fresh. Remember, a good papaya should have a pleasant, sweet aroma.

There are countless ways to enjoy papaya. Slice it up and add it to your morning yoghurt or cereal for a tropical twist. Blend it into a smoothie with some pineapple and coconut water for a refreshing drink. For a savoury option, try a classic Thai papaya salad with lime, peanuts, and a dash of fish sauce. Papaya is also fantastic in salsas and chutneys, adding a sweet and tangy element to your dishes. Get creative and enjoy this versatile fruit in your favourite recipes!
