The Papaya/பப்பாளி பழம் is a tropical fruit, rich in nutrients and loaded with antioxidants. Papaya is orange colored juicy fruit, which is not only fragrant but also extremely delicious and tasty, so Christopher Columbus reportedly called it “Fruit of Angels”. Papaya has numerous health benefits which includes better digestion, stronger immunity, regulated menstruation, relief from toothache, weight loss, skin care, better heart health etc. Researchers have discovered that papayas are effective against breast, pancreatic and other cancers. The latex obtained from papayas is used to treat the areas of the skin affected by acne. This fruit is not just healthy but tasty and versatile. We can make several recipes with raw papaya and ripe fruit can be had in different ways which I will be sharing in my upcoming posts. As Papaya is tropical fruit it grows abundantly in Chennai.
