Green Papaya has a smooth green skin instead of the regular yellow-orange exterior. Its flesh is mildly similar to melon’s flesh. It is versatile since it can be enjoyed raw, boiled, bakes or sautéed. Papayas are rich sources of antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C, flavonoids, folate, potassium, magnesium and fiber. Together, these nutrients promote the health of the cardiovascular system and provide protection against colon cancer.
