Red Papaya

Overview

It is believed that Christopher Columbus called the Red Papaya the `Fruit of Angels.’ It is not known if he said this because of its luscious color and sweetness, or the nutritive values it offered. The red papaya, earlier chiefly a tropical fruit, is today gaining popularity across the world. And here is why - loaded with nutrients, the fruit is believed to protect against cancer, help in digestive problems, and also the sweet fruit that diabetics can have. Further, Papayas also contain high fiber potassium, iron, calcium, plus the daily requirement of vitamin A and three days worth of vitamin C.

The Red Papaya finds its origins in the tropics of Mexico, and today is grown across all tropical regions in the world with India leading the list. The fruit is very popular across the country, and we are happy to be able to source the best of the produce for you.
