“Golden Papaya With Lime”

Description from Elis Mom: When we moved into our home, we had a blank back yard. I planted 6 papaya trees along the fence. They are messy plants, but the fruit is wonderful, even if it is an aquired taste. It's best served peeled and diced with a squeeze of lime on top, and a dollop of yogurt. The black seeds are peppery and can be dried and used as such. Papaya is also good for digestion, and yes, I gave it to the dogs often. Unfortunately, the trees died in a freeze last winter when it was so very cold. I hope to get some more this year!

    Thanks, Lynn! And yes, Dix loves her papaya! She also likes watermelon….but it has to be Florida grown…she turns her nose up at the Guatamalan melons! Don’t ask me how she knows, but she DOES!
