Ripe? My foot!
Ripe? They should be yellow - mine were bright green! Hard as rock for five days.
How are grass green papayas "ripe and ready to eat"? One needed several days to go yellow and then was edible. The other one needed a whole week to go yellow, but was still horrible inside and inedible.
Highly nutritious & always happy with my purchase
This is an incredibly beneficial fruit if you have acid issues. Its ph is over 5.5. As it comes to us from Jamaica it's picked green for export so not as juicy as i remember when i lived in Oz, but i am grateful that Tesco stocks it, and it ticks all my boxes. Incredibly nutritious and kind to my gut and i love it with lemon juice or part of a fruit salad. Thank you Tesco -
These were completely green on arrival, not ripe as advertised, and by the time they had ripened, they were also going mouldy so I had to throw them away.
Disappointing - fruit not edible
Disappointing. Poor quality as unripe, hard and inedible. The downside of on-line shopping plus an expensive mistake
Perefect product at best price
Excellent quality, perfect product best possible price across the land. Than you Tesco for serving the nation at the highest possible stands.
very good quality
very good quality
Delicious, good quality (and superb for fast wound healing).
Can be good but you have to pick them with care
These vary - at best they are ripe and juicy, at worst they look as though they came off the tree too early. These are about the only product I won't order online as I like to see what I am getting. They are not cheap so I really don't want to be stuck with the small, unripe ones!
Unripe fruit papaya (pawpaws)
I usually purchase the pawpaws but recently they are so immature that they are barely edible raw .Having lived in Ghana for 20 years I do know my fruit well, as I had some trees in the garden
