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.
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 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.
The Red Papaya Fruits (Carica Papaya L.) are harvested, quickly transported to fruit processing plant & inspected. Fully firm selected high quality fruits go to the controlled ripening chambers and are allowed to ripen. Fully ripened Papaya fruits are then washed, peeled, blanched, inspected and deseeded. The extracted pulp is then centrifuged, thermally processed and aseptically filled in pre-sterilized bags. The process ensures that the natural flavor & aroma of the fruit is retained in final product.
