This fruit is a large edible berry, with numerous seeds; it is green when unripe, maturing to yellow or brown.
Paw Paw has a flavor somewhat similar to both banana and mango, varying significantly by cultivar, and has more protein than most fruits.
Paw Paw tonifies the stomach and acts as a digestive aid. it contains the enzyme papain which helps protein to digest. it is therefore useful for weak digestion or dyspepsia (indigestion).
Paw Paw is rich in vitamin A, fibre, magnesium and C.
We recommend paw paw leaf tea which is a concentrated source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins, chlorophyll and fibre, and made from 100% whole leaves from Aussie Health Products.
