Fresh papaya has sweet orange flesh. Each fruit is around 1kg
The “Ostrov chutí” Farm is located on the Canary Island of La Palma and is dedicated to the organic cultivation of dragon fruit, mangoes and maracuja. Thanks to the very favourable subtropical climate of this green island and the organic way of cultivation, we produce fruit that stands out for its sweetness and great taste.

“The fruit is eaten in green, unripe and orange, ripe form. As an unripe fruit, papaya is mainly used in Asian cuisine. It must be peeled and the seeds, which are white, removed before cooking.
The ripe fruit has a beautiful yellow skin and orange flesh with black seeds. Before eating, it must be peeled and the seeds and soft parts around them removed. We recommend a light sprinkling of lime.”
The best of La Palma!
La Palma is one of the seven volcanic Canary Islands surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Africa.
Its location, stable weather, abundant rainfall and sunny days have created ideal conditions for growing a wide variety of plants.
If you love healthy food and organic food, where else would you find a healthier environment than on a sunny island in the middle of the Atlantic! Thanks to traditional practices and respect for the environment, La Palma was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2002!
