We have about 20 different kinds on fruit trees at the Villa. Most have seasons, but papayas grow year round. The larger variety is less sweeter than the smaller round one. Some cultures use them as vegetables.
We use our papayas as fruit in smoothies, fruit salads and as a plain snack.
These papayas are loaded with seeds, and you can grind them up as well. They have a sort of pepper taste, but I don't like it.
I toss the seeds and toss them in the yard and cover them with dirt.
Papayas like dry ground. We always get a bunch growing where they land and as they grow only two or three make it.
