Green Papaya

HOW TO CHOP:

STEP 1
Place Green papaya on its side. Cut off about 3 inches of the bottom.

STEP 2
Stand the papaya on its end. Slice off the peel in thin, downward slices. Leave enough peel at top to hold and turn the fruit. Position a spoon below to easily pick up the slippery peels.

STEP 3
Place the papaya back on its side. Hold the top of the papaya while you trim any remaining peel off the bottom.

STEP 4
With the peel off, cut off the top.

STEP 5
Slice down the middle of the papaya.

STEP 6
Flip over to show seed cavity. Scoop out seeds and hard white fibers.

STEP 7
If chopping for salads, turn the papaya seed cavity down, and slice lengthwise to your desired width.
