Grown throughout Central Mexico, these papayas are 3 to 5 pounds in weight and the shape of an elongated melon. Their skin is green when unripe but turns yellow to orange with a few freckles once they become mature. They are wonderfully soft and juicy, and have a salmon pink or red flesh that is very sweet with a slightly perfumed, fruity flavor. Cut them in half lengthwise, scoop out the small, shiny, gelatinous black seeds from the center and discard them. Delicious and irresistible with a sprinkle of fresh lemon or lime juice. All you need is a spoon to enjoy these tropical treats.
