Papaya, papaw or pawpaw has sweet flesh with pungent undertones. The flesh is also soft when ripe with a buttery texture. Papayas grow in all tropical and subtropical countries throughout the world including Africa. 

Coconuts are called the “Tree of Life” throughout the world because every part of the coconut is used for drinks, fiber, food, fuel, utensils, musical instruments, and much more.
