Papayas - ick

Does anyone else but me thing papayas carry the distinct odor of puke when you first cut into them and they still have the seeds? Don't get me wrong. I like eating papaya chunks with greek yogurt and love dried papaya but the fresh ones...man I don't see why people thought they would be good to eat in the first place after smelling that.

I'm with you 100%! I won't eat them at all because of the smell. I won't go near Durian either.

Here's a Cuban joke.

On the border (don't ask me, I don't remember the fine details. Cuba apparently post guards in towns.), in the middle of the night, the guard here's someone coming, but he can't see who it is.
"Who goes there?"
"A woman with 2 papayas."
He throws down his rifle and lets her in saying, "I'm not missing this, not even for Fidel!"

Get it? Get it? Of course not. You're not Cuban. Hey, can you guess the slang term for certain female parts is in Cuba?

If you're hungry enough, you'll eat anything I guess.

I'd have to be pretty hungry.

I'm more familiar with green papaya, which doesn't have /quite/ the same evergreen scent as green mango, but certainly doesn't have the same sickly-sweet scent as ripe papaya. Shredded green papaya makes for a really lovely highly-spiced southeast Asian salad.

Right-o. I've had the green ones too and you are right, they taste nothing like their putrid cousins.

The first time I had papaya was in Mexico ... I was 15 and on a church missionary thingie. It was so disgusting, all I could taste was puke (it must have been very ripe) ... it was only until this last year I dared taste it again and it was good. Yeah .. the puke kept me off that fruit my whole life :(

I was eating a snack fruit cup the other day with papaya and it must have fermented a bit because as soon as I opened it...eeek that smell! yuck!
