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 for dessert, snack or breakfast (with your cereals).

  1. Do they sell those in the market down there? PawPaws are a custardy wild fruit here. Not sold in stores.

  2. No they don't sell them in stores, you have to grow them in a garden, the only papaya that can grow in NZ
