Once considered exotic, we can now find papayas throughout the year in almost any market. It has a slight peak season in early summer, but generally, the papaya tree bears fruit all year long.

Papayas are rich sources of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C, E, and flavonoids; the B vitamins, folate, and pantothenic acid; and the minerals, potassium, copper, and magnesium; and fiber. Furthermore, papaya contains, papain, an enzyme that helps digest proteins.
