FAQs about papayas
Royal Star papayas have a very sweet taste thanks to their high levels of fructose, a natural sweetener. With a rating of 14 on the Brix scale, they're one of the sweetest varieties of papayas available. They also have a stronger, tropical aroma which enhances their taste. It's not uncommon for people who believe they don't like papayas, because they think they are bland or bitter, to change their mind once they taste Royal Star papayas.
Many people discard the black seeds at the center of Royal Star papayas, but these seeds are actually edible and very nutritious. The Royal Star papaya's seeds contain protein, magnesium, calcium, and dietary fiber, so don't throw them away. You can eat them raw or dry them in the sun for a few days. Grind the dried papaya seeds into a powder and add them to smoothies, soups, or shakes for a nutrition boost.
Some people avoid GMO produce because they feel these fruits and vegetables are unnatural and less healthy than non-GMO alternatives. Many of the papayas are genetically modified to make them virus resistant. However, genetic modifications were introduced to combat viruses in Hawaii, so most papayas grown outside this state are not genetically modified. Since they come from Mexico, Royal Star papayas are never GMO, so you can enjoy them even if you prefer steering clear of GMO foods.
