I had 5 plants of papaya - different varieties - all fruiting beautifully.

Deliciously sweet with musky undertones and a soft, butter-like consistency, it is no wonder the papaya was reputably called the "fruit of the angels" by Christopher Columbus. Once considered quite exotic, they can now be found in markets throughout the year. Although there is a slight seasonal peak in early summer and fall, papaya trees produce fruit year round.

Papayas are spherical or pear-shaped fruits that can be as long as 20 inches. The ones commonly found in the market usually average about 7 inches and weigh about one pound. Their flesh is a rich orange color with either yellow or pink hues. Inside the inner cavity of the fruit are black, round seeds encased in a gelatinous-like substance. Papaya's seeds are edible, although their peppery flavor is somewhat bitter. The fruit, as well as the other parts of the papaya tree, contain papain, an enzyme that helps digest proteins. This enzyme is especially concentrated in the fruit when it is unripe. Papain is extracted to make digestive enzyme dietary supplements and is also used as an ingredient in some chewing gums.


Health Benefits

Papayas offer not only the luscious taste and sunlit color of the tropics, but are rich sources of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids; the B vitamins, folate and pantothenic acid; and the minerals, potassium, copper, and magnesium; and fiber. Together, these nutrients promote the health of the cardiovascular system and also provide protection against colon cancer. In addition, papaya contains the digestive enzyme, papain, which is used like bromelain, a similar enzyme found in pineapple, to treat sports injuries, other causes of trauma, and allergies.

美味甜中带麝香意味和软,奶油般的一致性,这也难怪木瓜被称为好评哥伦布的“天使之果”。一度被认为很奇异的,他们现在可以在市场上一年四季发现。虽然在初夏和秋季有轻微的季节性高峰,木瓜树结出果子全年。

木瓜是球形或梨形的水果,可以是只要20英寸。在市场中常见的那些,通常平均约7英寸,重约1磅。他们的肉是一个丰富的橙色与黄色或粉红色的色调。果的内腔内都装在一个凝胶状状物质黑色,圆形种子。木瓜的种子可食用,虽然他们的胡椒的味道有点苦。果,以及木瓜树的其它部分,含有木瓜蛋白酶,酶,有助于消化蛋白质。这种酶尤其集中在水果,当它不成熟。木瓜蛋白酶被提取,使消化酶膳食补充剂和也用作在某些口香糖的成分。


健康益处

木瓜不仅提供了甜美的味道热带的阳光明媚的颜色,但含有丰富的抗氧化营养素如胡萝卜素,维生素C和黄酮类化合物的来源; B族维生素,叶酸和泛酸;和矿物质,钾,铜,镁;和纤维。总之,这些营养物促进心血管系统的状况,并且还提供保护,防止结肠癌。此外,木瓜包含消化酶,木瓜蛋白酶,它用于像菠萝蛋白酶,菠萝发现了类似的酶,治疗运动损伤,外伤等原因造成,和过敏。
