Ripe papayas can be stored in a cool place for several days, but should not be kept in the refrigerator. Unripe fruits can ripen at room temperature.

You can of course just peel, dice and eat papayas. But what is also fun is to make papaya yachts! Cut the papayas in half and remove the seeds. Now fill the space with whatever you like. Yogurt, quark, ice cream… And then decorate with toppings such as fruit, cereals, nuts or seeds. The possibilities are endless!
