Food Facts

Often used in savory dishes and salads, a green papaya is also known as an unripened Mexican papaya. It has a dark green skin with a translucent yellowish green flesh and seeds of similar coloring. The seeds have a peppery flavor and can be ground and used as a substitute for pepper in recipes. The flesh has a texture and taste similar to that of a cucumber.


Look for the pumpkin used to prepare this recipe in the ethnic section of your supermarket. Often called "calabaza," it is usually sold in 1- to 2-lb. chunks.
