Papaya Seeds are usually thrown away but these little black seeds make the best teas.

Papaya is a tropical fruit crop in Kenya, South Africa, Côte d’Ivoire, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. It is grown widely both as a commercial crop and in small gardens where it is an important source of nutrition and income. Papaya seeds have traditionally been used as a natural remedy for digestive issues. They contain an enzyme called papain, which aids in the breakdown of proteins and supports digestion. The fiber content in the seeds can also help promote regular bowel movements and prevent constipation.

Papayas are large oblong shaped tropical fruits with thin skin that are golden yellow when they are ripe and ready to eat.

The fruit will be slightly soft to the touch and ripe papayas can be yellow, orange, pink or red, depending on the variety.
