We have two types of papaya trees at False Bluff. The type that produces huge papayas and the type that doesn't produce huge papayas.
This tree is loaded with the huge papayas, easily larger than a football. The one at the bottom of this scrum has just started to turn from green to gold - a clear sign it's ready to pick.
Peeled and sliced.....
this papaya, about the size of a watermelon, makes its way into bowls for snacks in the middle of a hot day, snacks that are hard to beat.
