Papaya - History
Called the 'fruit of the angels' by Christopher Columbus, Papayas are native to Central America and have long been revered by the American Indian populations as a powerful nutritional supplement.
Upon conquest, the Spaniards and Portuguese brought these deliciously sweet jewels with them to many other subtropical lands to which they journeyed, including India, the Philippines and parts of Africa.
Papayas were brought into the United States in the 20th Century. Today, these delectable fruits are grown in Hawaii, the major U.S. producer of Papaya fruit since the 1920's.
The Papaya is a nutritional powerhouse, containing the anti-oxidant vitamins C and E, and well as high folate and potassium content.
