Mountain pawpaw with lemon and sugar

This is a sweet smelling mountain pawpaw. Apparently you can eat the seeds like for passion fruit, but I planted mine (unfortunately it has been really dry and I think that they didn't survive!). For the flesh I just added a few drops of lemon juice and a tiny bit of sugar, and then I let the fruit marinate for a few hours. Very nice!

  1. Never tasted this fruit, looks fabulous.

  2. A bit like a guava rather than a papaya :-)

  3. This was my dad's favourite. The papaya with a squeeze of lime. But the sugar was a no-no.
