Papaya coconut

Today I tried my first ever papaya! Since I’d never tasted it before, I wasn’t sure about how to eat it. I first tried a couple of seeds. Their taste is hard to describe, but I can’t say I recommend eating them. The actual fruit tasted much better.

By the way, do you remember the Swedish pop sensation Dr. Alban? (I completely understand if you don’t, his career peaked in the early 90s) Anyway, one of his less famous songs is called Papaya Coconut. I just listened to it on Youtube, and suddenly I feel like having a coconut.

    Just checked out that song! It’s a pretty catchy tune, and it got me feeling like having a coconut too :)

    You should try having papaya with some lime juice, it gives the papaya some really great taste!

    You never tried papaya before? It’s so good (especially with lime, like someone mentioned). I have it quite often, it’s one of my favorite fruits actually.

    Papaya is one of my favorites. The seeds are not for eating though so just scoop those out. In Mexico we eat it with lime juice and little bit of sugar. I know it can be sweet on it’s own but if you just sprinkle a little it makes it even more savory.

    I’ve never liked papayas all that much, but coconut might be my favorite fruit! (or is it a nut?) :)

    Papaya is very popular in this part of the world. Actually, I’m one of the few people in my family who doesn’t like it! I can’t even stand the smell – I don’t like to be in the same room as it!

    Oh, and this is unrelated but I just wanted to send you a note about the hanging couch (swing) – would you believe that it’s quite common here? Either for bedrooms, living rooms, or a front porch. I love them!

    I absolutely love papaya! Sometimes I will have it for breakfast with a banana and some walnuts or almonds. So delicious. Did you like it?

    I love papaya. I think ur right the one pictured here looks not ripe enough. I kinda like it when they’re not ripe enough since it’s a little more crispy. The ones that have ripened completely taste sweet. My mom loves eating it with lime juice but i love it stand alone :) I miss eating the juicy and tasty ones back at hometown in Indonesia, this post makes me remember that ^^
