Papaya

Papaya, known as the "fruit of the angels" by Christopher Columbus, and is a real a tropical treat. Because of the strong enzyme in papaya, like pineapple, you can't mix them with things too early or they will start to break it down, unless, of course, that's your intention like in tenderizing meat or making a papaya salsa (mix papaya, lime, cilantro, jalapeno, ginger, garlic - use to top fish, chicken.) With it's deep orange color, papaya are high in antioxidants, including carotene, flavanoids, and Vitamin C. Also high in folic acid, vitamin E,, and a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamins A and E.
