Papayas are the versatile tropical fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked. If you eat it raw, you can even eat the seeds which have a sharp and spicy taste. If you're cooking it, you can put them in curries, salads and stews. Additionally, they have a high amount of pectin which is suitable for making jellies. While the exterior smell may strike some as unpleasant, the naturally sweet flesh is irresistible.
