PAPAYA (Carica papaya)

The brazilian papaya, of oblong shape, with its yellow "fleckled" skin, red-pink flesh and characteristic flavour, is widely considered as one of the most attractive and delicious fruits available. It is known for centuries by the Indians and its medicinal use increases at every passing day. With a high content of vitamins A and C, low in calories and with a complement of enzymes, which aid digestion, the papaya is ideal for those on special sodium-free diets. Its ripening point can be determined by a predominance of yellow external colour. Rio Doce exports 3 different varieties of this product: GOLDEN, SOLO and FORMOSA.

AVAILABLE all year round.
