A DELIGHTFUL GIFT OF THE TROPICS. Papaya is a tropical fruit with a wonderfully exotic flavor. Some say it's an aphrodisiac. Our papaya is sourced from Thailand, dried and sliced into chunks and dices. Naturally sweet, it makes good snack and lunch box treats. For colorful garnishing, sprinkle over cereals or salads. Use as a tasty ingredient in breads, cakes, pies, and desserts. 1 0z of dehydrated papaya replaces a fresh fruit portion; it can be consumed as a complement to cereal. Papayas grow large and sweet in Costa Rica's fertile, tropical lowlands. They have a rich, bright orange color and a soft, delicate texture. The fresh papayas are sliced when they are sweet and perfectly ripe. They are placed in wooden trays and dried in wind ovens at a 60 degree Celsius temperature. A delicious snack ready to be enjoyed at any time.
