Papaya Puree /Pulp & Concentrate :
General Description :

Papaya plants grow in three sexes: male, female, hermaphrodite. The male produces only pollen, never fruit. The female will produce small, inedible fruits unless pollinated. The hermaphrodite can self-pollinate since its flowers contain both male stamens and female ovaries. Almost all commercial papaya orchards contain only hermaphrodites.

Puree/Pulp & Concentrate are made from selected varieties of Papaya Red / Yellow. Fully matured Papaya are harvested, quickly transported to our fruit processing plant, inspected, washed and sent for further process. Selected high quality fruits go to the controlled ripening chambers; Fully Ripened Papaya fruits are then washed, blanched, pulped, reseeded, centrifuged, homogenized, concentrated when required, thermally processed and aseptically filled maintaining commercial sterility.

The centre of the fruit is a hallow with nestle black rounded seeds.With their subtle tropical flavor, papayas are wonderful in fruit salads, puréed fruit drinks, or even shish kabobs. They’ are rich In Vitamin A, also good for health and easy to peel and seed. It’s a natural remedy for digestive disorders and constipation.
