As I am now in a country where papaya grows, I looked for more information about this delicious and useful plant. I knew it is useful, but did not know that sooo useful: strengthens heart, prevents diabetes, cancer, regulates blood pressure, even prevents age related macular degeneration. I like eating the fruit, but also the seeds. They contain a lot of papain. I eat the seeds raw or dry as a substitutes of pepper. Well, fruit and herbs I use as precaution not to develop illnesses. Thus I will eat even more this useful fruit.

I like the plant. Never saw so many before. It is amazing that it can hold so many heavy fruit.

I have also read that one should not eat not ripe papaya unless cooked and that people having latex allergy may be sensitive to papaya.
