With the color and taste of the tropics, papayas are round or pear-shaped fruits with orange-yellow or orange-pink skins. Inside, the inner cavity contains peppery, edible seeds surrounded by lusciously sweet, silky flesh. Once considered quite exotic, papayas can now be found in markets throughout the year. They're wonderful for eating fresh, adding to mango salads and mango salsas and cooking or grilling.
