Have you ever had a Papaya?

I don't think I'd ever consumed (or really seen) a Papaya before last night.  Well, I guess we didn't eat it last night, but we saw it in Whole Foods, and purchased it with the intent to consume it today.  So we did.  And it was great.  The taste reminded me of cantaloupe or honeydew but it really has a distinct look and innards.  I will show you what I mean below.  :)  So, I recommend if you haven't yet tried a papaya to do so!  They're yummy!
See what I mean about the innards looking kind of odd?  It kind of looks like black pomegranate seeds...but I'm not too sure these seeds are edible.  So just discard them.
While you are scooping out the weird seeds get the stringy orange part too.  That's where it reminded me of a squash...btw.
Pile to discard.  My hubby saved some of the seeds and planted them.  We'll let you know if anything crops up! :)
Slice it up.
And serve!  Yum! :)
