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!

“Sweet and chewy! Better than candy. And it arrived 2 days after I ordered!”

“Tough to chew, but really delicious. The pieces are large and can't be ripped by hand, so I suggest cutting up the whole bag into smaller pieces with kitchen shears.”

“Dried Natural Papaya (no sugar added)is the bomb! My 3 boys (who don't like fresh papaya) devoured my whole bag. They liked it even better than candy (gasp!) ”

“I just wanted to say thank you for your prompt delivery. I must say that the natural papaya i purchased from you was the best ever. it was so hard not to finish all three 1 pound bags in a week. It is so addicting once you start you can't stop eating it. Your service is great and i would definitely be a long term customer. Have a great day.”
Laurie, Owings Mills, MD March 2, 2006
“ I found it first at a candy & nut store in NY, They couldn't get it anymore. Then I found it again and the texture changed. I have searched high & low for the natural papaya for about a year. Your picture looked like the right consistency.I received and it was just what I wanted. Yum. Thank you so much. ”

“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.”
