Carica papaya

The papaya is a common fruit tree throughout the warmer regions of Colombia where it may be indigenous. The highly nutritious fruit is not to my taste, but good mixed with other fruit for juice. The whole fruit is edible. The fruit can be as large as a watermelon or small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Photographed in Barranquilla.
