Brazil is the major exporter of papayas (1,650,000 tons/yr) and one of the main exporters to the European market. Because of the wide array of papaya varieties, this fruit is one of the most flavorful and sought after in Brazil and around the world. The Papaya is very good for one's health; its red pulp is an excellent laxative and its seeds defend against parasites and viruses.
