Today we planted close to 50 red papayas. Did you know fermented papaya is a well studied nutritional super food and body regenerator? I made it last week, fermented papaya, and it was so good. A basic lacto-ferment similar to a good kraut but with a rich, silkiness to it that is not present in cabbage. It is absolutely great.
Papaya can also go from seed to fruiting in 9 months. We collected the seeds and germinated all of the papayas we are planting today. Locally, the red variety is sold at market for double the typical orange colored variety. I think we planted 5 or so orange colored fruiting plants today as well today.
