When you taste this Papaya there will be no other place you will want to purchase these - absolutely the best flavor!

Loaded with vitamin A and C, and with a host of medicinal qualities, this fruit superpower is probably one of the most consumed tropical fruits in the world: and for a reason. Go to any Central and South American country and visit a village, and you will see 5 generations of people - ask them if Papaya is staple in their diet and I would bet the farm that the answer to the question is yes.
The variety we carry is known as Red Lady and is rarely seen in any supermarket or mass distribution outlet. The flavor is sweet but mild and does not have the smell that gives papaya a bad name. Unique to South Florida there are only a handful of people growing this variety.
The outside of the fruit is green slowing turning to yellow or orange. The inside contains a lot of seed which you take out (but you can eat them). Eaten mostly raw its nice to squeeze some fresh lime on to add a nice citrus twist. Makes a great fruit salad when added to pineapple, mango and oranges. Drizzle some of my golden passion fruit and use it like you would on a green salad with the seed of the passion fruit and you will have a tropical masterpiece.
Due to the unusually hot summer, shipping highly perishable fruit is more tricky than usual Some fruit is arriving over-ripe. If you have an issue with your order, please call me. I pack every box myself, and want you to be happy with your fruit!
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the Keys. You are invited to visit our farm for free as a tropical fruit of the month customer. We grow for you!!
