Unripe/Green Papaya Benefits and Uses

Introduction to Papaya:

The people who love Papaya Fruit should know that Papaya is an amazing tropical fruit, that help us to live a perfect life. It’s not just tasty but it is great for skin, hair and our body.  Some people also call it “Papaya the Medicine Tree,” the entire papaya plant ( roots, leaves and fruit) offers medicinal value. Young papaya leaves are eaten like a vegetable in some cuisines, and papaya leaves tea have many medicinal effects, they are also really effective in dengue fever.

I believe everyone should eat Papaya, even if you don’t like the taste of Papaya. In my opinion, Papaya is delicious but I prefer Mangoes on Papaya. Although, both of the fruits are entirely different from each other but they look somehow same.

 Unripe/Green Papaya:
