Green papaya is a tropical fruit that is commonly found in Southeast Asia and other tropical regions around the world. It is picked before it fully ripens and is usually eaten cooked, although it can also be eaten raw when it is still green.
It has a firm texture and a mild, slightly sweet flavor. It is often used in salads, stews, curries, and other savory dishes. In Filipino cuisine, it is a common ingredient in the popular dish called “sinigang,” a sour soup that typically contains meat or seafood, vegetables, and tamarind for flavor.
Did you know that it is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin C, and other essential nutrients? It is also believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and may help improve digestion, boost the immune system, and support skin health.
When selecting it, look for those that are firm and free of blemishes or soft spots. To prepare it, peel the skin and remove the seeds, then cut it into desired size and shape. Whether cooked or eaten raw, it is a delicious and healthy addition to any meal.
