Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Is this really natural? Yes, we now sell all natural papaya, with no added sugar and no sulphur dioxide or other preservatives. This delicious treat reminds us of extra sticky and chewy fruit roll-ups from our youth. Natural dried papaya is a lot tougher to chew than the sweetened variety of papaya, but the taste is incredible and worth the effort! Make sure you have good teeth though or be prepared to use a knife to cut in order to truly enjoy this delicacy.
Health Benefits of Natural Dried Papaya
Natural papaya is a good source of dietary fiber and enzymes that support a healthy digestive system. As an alkaline fruit, papaya is helpful in soothing an upset stomach. It’s also chock-full of beta carotene which the body uses to make vitamin A. This nutrient aids in the maintenance of healthy skin and mucous membranes, while also lending a helping hand to eye health. Vitamin A supports good vision and reduces the risk of eye infections. Natural papaya is also packed with antioxidants, which are the protective compounds that neutralize harmful free radicals to prevent damage to healthy cells in your body. This delicious tropical treat can really boost your nutrition levels!

“Once again, you come through with flying colors--super fast, yummy everything. Thanks for the sample gift of Goji berries--I have actually pondered getting them and now I'll be able to taste them before ordering next time!
Your natural papaya is a staple here (if you did not 'get it' yet from the multiple pounds I order every time--the bulk of my orders), and so are the unsweetened coconut flakes and lovely barberries, which I cannot get anyplace else and are a great morning sprinkle-on-or-in-cereal/muffins/pancakes favorite.
We're trying out the sour balls (not usually big candy orders here, but one does need some candy for mental health, don't you think?...). Will let you know how those go.
So glad that you are as wonderful as you are!

“Order the dried mango and papaya. Super fast delivery and extremely delicious! Will definitely order more once I finish my four pounds worth!”

“My package arrived earlier than scheduled. I love the messages on the outside of the box! The packaging is eye catching, but the dried fruit inside was exceptional! I tried the natural papaya first and loved it. We also loved the blueberries, coconut, and turkish figs that we ordered. I was surprised to find an extra bag, which turned out to be a package of medjool dates for us to try. They were so soft and sweet! My 4 yr old took one bite and demanded to eat a whole date herself. Thank you for the sweet fruit, cool packaging, and awesome customer service! Definitely ordering again!”

“Great experience, AGAIN. I am a nuts'oholic by now. Do you have an AA program for people who cannot do without your products anymore? ;) Everything arrived, all delicious. The dried papaya are a staple and consistently good. I have to say that my absolute favorite for this shipment are the organic dried pitted plum--OMG!! The best I'd had in a long time! Now I just am sorry I did not remember to order the wasabi peanuts. Oh well, gotta leave something to pine for till the next order comes around... (won't be long, I reassure you...).”

“I am becoming a repeat-repeat-repeat customer, and I am loving it!
Thank you for another perfect experience with your site and order and packaging and delivery. Ordered late Sunday, received Tuesday afternoon. Can't ask for more!
The natural papaya is a staple here--it is a great food, snack, candy, digestive, and all around lovely. I keep ordering more of it every time, I think next time it might need to be even more... Thanks, too, for the barberries--not very known, maybe, but excellent and the kiddos love'em in pancakes and yogurt. All the taste, all the healthy benefits... Same for the unsweetened cherries and the jumbo raisins. Thanks for the gift of raw-almonds to try. They will pair excellently with the raisins for snacks tomorrow! Will let you know how the coconut is when I try it...which will not be in too long...
Again, you are the best! Keep up the good work. The kids said to tell you that: "we are nuts about the nuts at nuts.com!"”

“Having tons of food allergies, papaya is one of the few things I can eat. And the natural papaya is out of this world!! No sugar, it is sweet and delicious all by itself!! (Note: I much prefer the natural papaya to the organic papaya; the latter has less flavor to me.)”
Deanna, Upland, California June 7, 2013
“LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! Please also sell turkey jerky, and then I can order everything I eat from you guys!! SERIOUSLY THE BEST COMPANY OUT THERE!! (Sorry for yelling, but I'm eating your delicious natural papaya right now and it makes it hard to control myself :D)”

“This is my second order with you. Everything that I've ordered from you has been fresh and delicious. The Goji Berries, Natural Papaya, and Rainier Cherries are all wonderful! I'm in love with the flavor of your Habanero Beef Jerky. The Buffalo Peanuts are incredibly addictive. Thank you so much for showing such wonderful customer service. Delivery was on time and packaging was spot on. I will be ordering many more times in the future!”

“I could not be happier with my order! After seriously narrowing down my selections (there are SO many delicious-looking items to choose from!), I purchased 10lb of goodies, and they are WELL worth the price! My favorite things right now are the natural papaya (try it if you've never had it!!), organic mango, and maca powder, which I've never tried before but am loving! I will definitely be placing more orders in the future! You guys rock!!!”

“When received the package I immediately fell in love with the packaging. Once I tasted the goods I fell in love with the whole experience. Excellent presentation, excellent quality on all products. The natural papaya and the apricots are amazing, just right not too dry. The habas out of this world. Bombay kale chips, yum!! Will definitely shop at nuts.com again very, very soon. Telling all my friends about it as well. Nuts for Nuts.com”

“this stuff is so hard to find. No store in Tucson has it. I used to get it at New Frontiers in Sedona, but now that they were bought out by Whole Foods I wonder if it's still there. Much better than that sugar-candied stuff they call "dried papaya". this is the real thing.”
