Look for deep colored papayas that are orange, gold or yellow. You don't wantmushy papayas and so look for slightly firm papayas. It's okay if the papaya isspotted as this is natural and is a sign of potentially more flavorful juice.
Peel before juicing if you have a week juicer. If you have a powerful juicerthen you can also juice the peel.
I personally don't juice the seeds. The seeds can affect the tastenegatively. It's a personal choice though if you want to juice the seeds or not.
Wash your hands after handling either the papaya skin or seeds. Both theseeds and skin can cause some people to have itchy skin. Avoid touching youreyes until after you have washed your hands.
I like papaya as it is high in papain, a natural digestive enzyme.
Depending on the quality of your juicer, a papaya may not juice well as itcan be more mushy. Some papayas are better in smoothies. But if you have a goodjuicer and a good papaya, then you can make really delicious juice.
