FAQs about strawberry papayas
Strawberry papayas are rich in vitamins A and C, both of which are rich in antioxidants and have immune-boosting properties. The vitamin A in strawberry papayas comes from beta carotene, a red-orange pigment found most commonly in carrots and sweet potatoes. Strawberry papayas are also a good source of dietary fiber, which aids digestion and boosts gut health.
Strawberry papayas are best eaten raw. Cut the fruit, scoop out the seeds, and enjoy the flesh as it is or with a drizzle of lemon juice. Some people enjoy the strawberry papaya with a light sprinkle of salt. Strawberry papayas can also be enjoyed as part of a tropical fruit salad; they pair quite well with bananas, mangos, pineapples, coconuts, and citrus fruits. You can change it up by throwing in some nuts and spices, too.
If you prefer to drink your fruits, you can juice the strawberry papaya or add it to your next smoothie. For a delicious fruit kebab, skewer some papayas with sweet onions, tomatoes, and pineapples.
The fruit and leaves of most papaya plants, ripe or unripe, can be used to tenderize meat. This is due to the presence of papain, an enzyme that can break down tough meat fibers. To use, juice or puree the raw papaya and toss your meat in it. Don't marinate your meat for too long, so you don't end up with grainy meat.
Most people enjoy only the flesh of the papaya, but you can also eat the seeds. They have a slightly peppery flavor and can be used to season various dishes. While papaya skin is not known to be poisonous, it's not exactly edible. Papaya plants produce latex, which is sometimes transferred to the skin of the fruit. As such, it could be dangerous to people with latex allergies.
In addition, pregnant women are advised not to eat any parts of unripe strawberry papaya to reduce the risk of miscarriage or harm to the fetus.
