Choose golden, slightly soft papaya.
Store at room temperature for maximum flavour. If mottled green, allow to ripen.
Scoop out the seeds before serving. These can be eaten in savoury dishes. They have a peppery flavour and crunchy texture.
Papaya is very sweet and needs lemon or lime juice to bring out its flavour. Peel and seed and use in salsas and savoury salads mixed with fresh coriander, mango, chilli, fish, shellfish or meat. Ripe papaya is also good in tropical fruit salads and pur©ed in smoothies.
Use green papaya as a vegetable or turn into pickle. It is particularly good raw in Thai salads such as green papaya with sweet crispy pork.
