Hawaiian Papaya is encased in a gleaming sunny yellow skin when ripened to perfection. This scrumptious fruit is ripe when mostly yellow and soft to the touch. The pulp is a matching creamy yellow, delicately scented, and deliciously sweet. A mass of black seeds is encased in a gelatinous coating in the center. Often discarded, the seeds are edible. Crunchy and peppery, crushed seeds can be used as a mildly spicy condiment.
