FAQs about Gold Papayas
The flavor of a papaya depends largely on its ripeness, but a ripened Gold Papaya will have a creamy texture and sweet flavor. Some people compare their flavor to cantaloupe or mango, though the three are very distinct. It has a milder fruity flavor and pairs well with more acidic fruits in smoothies, like strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries.
Yes! Bakers get creative with Gold Papaya all the time. They make papaya bars, similar to lemon bars, streusel cakes, or for a more straightforward approach, just plain roasted papaya. Desserts like papaya bread or papaya pudding are fun additions to the weekly meal plan. Papayas are also impressive additions to salads, smoothies, and slaws. They're also fun to pair with spice in a honey vinegarette dressing or add a passionate tropical flavor to BBQ sauce on chicken. Try them on pork chops, shrimp wraps with lettuce, or in stir fry, or bake them into pies and muffins for dessert.
Other than the delicious tropical flavor of a Gold Papaya, it's loaded with antioxidants like beta-carotene and lycopene. They're high in fiber and Vitamin C, and medical studies show they have great potential to promote heart health. It can also improve digestion, protect your skin from damage, and even help you stay youthful for longer. This versatile fruit also has anti-cancer properties, anti-inflammatory properties, and they're packed with potassium, folate, Vitamin A, and magnesium.
