Hawaiian papaya is typically oval or pear-shaped and has a yellow, orange, or green skin that becomes soft and slightly wrinkled when the fruit is ripe. The flesh of the fruit is typically orange or pink and has a soft, slightly spongy texture. It has a sweet and slightly musky flavor. Hawaiian papaya is an excellent source of vitamin C and also contains small amounts of other nutrients such as potassium and vitamin A. It is often eaten fresh, but it can also be used in a variety of dishes such as smoothies, salads, and salsas. Hawaiian papaya is also popularly used to make papaya juice and other beverages.
