Picked almost ready to eat, these big, beautiful fruits are bold in color with a sweet, refreshing flavor.

This delicious new arrival from Belize is large like a maradol papaya. Its melon-like flavor, fragrant aroma and beautiful salmon red interior most resemble a strawberry papaya, only much sweeter. The fruit has an extremely high sugar content. Red papaya add color and flavor to any salad or can be served chilled topped with a dollop of vanilla ice cream for a tasty tropical sundae!

Fruit ripens green to yellow and is ripe when more than 50% of the papaya has turned a bright yellow. Caribbean Reds have a much longer shelf life than most other papaya varieties. Merchandise next to other tropical fruit from Melissa’s including maradol papaya, strawberry papaya, mangoes, and coconuts.
