New Fruits: Papayas

This summer I have decided I will try a few new fruits each month. There are so many varieties to try and living in CA we have many to select from. I am determined to find a fruit that my son will consistently eat other than bananas. Papayas are something I have always wanted to try. Odd that I have not tried one before. I think I am stuck in the rut of apples, bananas and oranges, all very healthy stuff I just want new flavors. We found some huge Caribbean Red Papayas at Sam's Club and for the price and size it was great compared to other stores.

I should have taken a picture before we cut it. It is a big piece of fruit. I shaved the outside with a potato peeler and washed it before I cut into it.

We had enough to eat for a treat and jarred the rest to stay fresh. I thought it tasted great. Its almost like if a mango and a avocado were intertwined. Very sweet but at the same time savory. I will add this to my list of must have again!

What fruits do you recommend I try?

I'm in a rut of the things over an over apples, pears, bananas, grapes, oranges, watermelon. Although I have tried apricots and love fresh pineapple and 2 of my children eat kiwi one after another. Other than that I'm not smart about new kinds of fruit.

I love Papaya! Have you ever tried pomegranates, kiwis, or guava?
