Papaya

Papaya (Papaya, Melon tree, Bread tree). It comes from Central and South America, and nowadays it is cultivated in almost all tropical countries. Do not confuse it with other “Bread trees” (Jackfruit and Artocarpus altilis Bread tree), there is nothing in common between these plants, just if you bake papaya on fire, it will start to smell like bread.

The fruits grow directly on the tree trunk, they are large, have an elongated shape and can reach a length of 45 cm and a diameter of 30 cm. The color of the unripe fruits is green, and the ripe fruits are yellow-orange. The taste of a mature papaya is not some kind of super exotic and memorable, but still very pleasant, it really resembles a melon.

Unripe fruits are used for food for a wide variety of dishes. And from papaya, drugs are made to treat osteochondrosis and improve digestion. A very useful plant, but the abundance of milk juice in all its parts makes you cautious, since in some people this juice can cause an allergic reaction.
