The fruit of papaya grows on a papayus tree that we might better call it giant grass, since the "tree" has no woody tissue. The bark is usually greenish or yellow, while its flesh is orange, pink or red; soft, juicy and sweet. The mature fruit can be used in fresh state or it can be dried and dehydrated and sugar can be used as well as other dried fruits - for breakfast like muesli or granola and in various cakes.
