Melissa’s introduces Organic Dried Papaya, organically grown and processed in accordance with the 1990 California Organic Foods Act.  Melissa’s Organic Dried Papaya is hand-selected for excellent quality. Drying a ripe fruit will cause it to lose most of its moisture and accumulate natural sugars, creating Melissa’s Organic Dried Papaya. 

Six pounds of fresh fruit will produce only one pound of dried fruit. Yet, because dried fruit is sweeter and richer in flavor than fresh fruit, it has become an invaluable ingredient in desserts and baking.

Melissa’s Organic Dried Papaya offers wholesome, low calorie snacks right from the bag, or they can be used in cakes, cookies, and even stuffings.

Melissa's Organic label reads: "Melissa's Certified Organic Produce is free of artificial or synthetic fertilizers and full of unforgettable, great tasting flavor. Our farmers use traditional earth-friendly farming methods inspected by a nationally recognized agency to verify organic authenticity. Melissa's Organic Produce, a choice made closer to nature."
