A good second best to fresh off the tree
They are never going to be as good as a ripe one straight from the tree but those wouldn't travel. I find that the Tesco Papayas generally ripen well if kept with a couple of bananas for a few days and they are still my favourite fruit.
Sense of Smell
When we go shopping together my Mum will buy these papaya as we think she has a b12 deficiency and so checked online to find that papaya contain the high content b12. This means that she can smell things again. So papaya are in fact quite important to one of her five senses, she eats them because she needs to. I find that the pack usually contain one well ripened papaya and one that is still unripe. They are often in stock, but we panic for her when they go out of stock as it may affect her sense of smell.. Quite a useful little product to take instead of medication.
Yum! I'm widening the variety of foods I eat and have bought this the last couple of weeks - it's so tasty & so good for you! Please keep stocking and get an organic version.
Got this for my wife as she likes tropical fruit. Bought online with rest of groceries for click and collect. They were not ripe as stated but were hard and had clearly been picked early, perhaps to make them easier to transport. After a 3 days in the fruit bowl, one ripened and was just ok. The next day, when she cut open the second one, it was rotten. Would not recommend. Not worth the trouble of asking for a refund.
Good after 2or3 days
Some times very small
Not ripe when bought as you can see 2/3 days later perfect to eat no problem love them
Will not risk buying these again.
Neither of these papapayas was ripe and only one ripened well enough to eat and that lacked taste. The second one had to be thrown away. Will not risk it again.
Tasteless exotic fruit
Poor quality and far from ripe fruit. I should of sent them back as the taste after a week wasn’t good at all.
they was as good as they could be , Yes they are not ready to eat ripe , but then I would not expect them to be other wise they would not keep , But 2 days later just perfect ,,
It's not what it says on the package!
Definitely not ripe and ready! This is a great fruit; should be harvested when it will finish ripening properly, so that it will be sweet and nice.
