Fresh PawPaw Fruit
FrutPlanet is a reliable and respected pawpaw exporter with a long history of providing excellent fruit quality at competitive prices. We adhere to rigorous export standards, and our team of experienced professionals is committed to providing you with the best possible pawpaw fruits.
Appearance and Colour: Pawpaws have a fleshy berry-like appearance and range from oval to nearly spherical. The skin is smooth green when unripe and turns to a yellow or orange hue as they ripen. However, depending on the variety, some may remain greenish even when fully ripened. Whatever the specification you quote in your order, FrutPlanet delivers. We priorities your fruit’s freshness and avoids sending fruit that is over-ripe, bruised or has any physical defects.
Fruit Sizes and Weight: A typical pawpaw fruit can weigh 9 to 11.5 kg. Their sizes vary from small to quite large, averaging about 15 to 45 cm long and 10 to 30 cm in diameter. However, some pawpaw varieties may be smaller than others. For example, pawpaw fruits from a semi-wild (naturalized) pawpaw plant may be 2.5 to 15 cm long. FrutPlanet ensures that the pawpaw fruits we deliver are of the correct size and weight according to the customers’ specifications.
Taste and Flavor: Pawpaws are slightly sweet with a tart aftertaste. However, the flavour can vary from fruit to fruit and even between different parts of the same pawpaw. For example, some people find its flavour reminiscent of cantaloupe, pineapple, or mangoes. Ripe pawpaw fruits are quite musky, while others taste buttery smooth depending on ripeness and variety. On the other hand, unripe pawpaw has more rigid flesh with little to no taste. At FrutPlanet, we focus on delivering the best quality pawpaws. We test our pawpaws for flavour and acidity before shipping them to you to ensure you’re getting a delicious product.
Pawpaw fruits can provide a range of health benefits when consumed as part of a healthy diet, including:
Reduce Cancer Risks: Research suggests that the antioxidants such as lycopene and beta carotene in pawpaw fruit scavenge harmful free radicals that can damage DNA and contribute to the development of cancer cells. Pawpaws are also a good source of vitamin C, which helps fight cancer cells.
Boost Energy Levels: Pawpaw fruit is a high-energy fruit that provides sustained energy due to the papain enzyme found in pawpaws. Papain breaks down proteins so your body can absorb nutrients and build muscle tissue.
Improve Memory and Cognitive Function: Several studies have shown that people who consume large amounts of beta carotene (a type of carotenoid) have a reduced risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.
Boost Cardiovascular Health: Pawpaw fruit is a good source of heart-healthy antioxidants, including vitamins A and C, which are linked to reducing the risk of heart disease and damage to the artery walls. The antioxidants also boost the protective roles of “good” HDL cholesterol and decrease the risk of “bad” LDL cholesterol.
Improve Digestion: Pawpaw fruits are an excellent dietary fibre source that stimulates gut bacteria and combats constipation. They also contain papain enzymes that improve digestion and make pawpaw used as a meat tenderizer. In addition, the carpaine antioxidant in pawpaw seeds kills bacteria and parasites in the intestines and thus promotes a healthier digestive system.
Reduce Inflammation: Chronic inflammation is a hallmark of many diseases, including cancer. Papaya fruit contains high carotenoid compounds that inhibit the production of inflammatory prostaglandins, which play a role in the development and progression of inflammation-related diseases.
Good for Skin: Fruits that contain Vitamin C are beneficial for the skin. They are good sources of natural ingredients to help improve skin health, and pawpaws are on the list. The lycopene in pawpaw fruit acts as an antioxidant that scavenges free radicals that can damage skin cells and lead to wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of aging. Research has also shown that supplementing with lycopene for 10-12 weeks can help reduce the appearance of skin redness after exposure to the sun.
Immediately after harvesting, the FrutPlanet quality control team inspects the pawpaws for defects and discards the damaged and diseased ones. We then classify fresh pawpaws that meet the grading criteria according to their colour and size. The size codes range from A-J, with the average weight ranging from 200-300 grams (Size A) to over 2000 grams (Size J).
Ideally, we pack pawpaws in single-layer fiberboard boxes with a protective lining between fruits to ensure they remain fresh and safe during transit, handling, and storage. However, the packaging criteria may differ based on the pawpaws’ features, the customer, and the market segment. Regardless of the packaging, FrutPlanet always takes a proactive and preventive approach to keep the fruit fresh until it reaches our customers.
We label the package in accordance with the name of the product, variety, packer and shipper, country of origin, and commercial specifications such as size, class, net weight, and number of units.
We Give Back: FrutPlanet commits 10% of its annual net sales to charity organisations and initiatives that support sustainable agriculture, nutritionism, and environmental conservation.
We Promise Quality: Quality assurance is a top priority at FrutPlanet, and we continuously work to improve the quality of our products. Our export standards are among the highest in the industry. Additionally, all of our pawpaw suppliers undergo a rigorous quality control program that includes inspections for the presence of pests or diseases and physical and chemical tests.
Committed to Customer Satisfaction: We understand that satisfaction is our customers’ ultimate goal. To achieve it, our customer support team works closely with our customers to ensure their needs are met. In addition, we work closely with quality assurance organizations to ensure that all of our pawpaw products meet or exceed the required standards.
Organic and GMO-Free Pawpaws: At FrutPlanet, we prioritise the health of our customers. We source only organically grown pawpaws, which are free of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and other chemicals. In addition, all of our pawpaw fruits are GMO-free.
When can I expect my order?
We typically source and ship orders within 7 days of receiving payment and deliver within 3-5 business days. However, due to the high demand for our products, sometimes there may be a delay of up to two days. When this happens, our customer service team will contact you to let you know.
Do you export fully ripped pawpaws?
Pawpaws have a short shelf life and are delicate. To prevent them from arriving at your doorstep over-riped and damaged, we do not export fully ripped pawpaws. We only ship partially-ripped pawpaws.
Which pawpaw variety do you export?
FrutPlanet exports a variety of pawpaws, including the solo, vega F1, sunrise, mountain, red royale F1, and sinta F1. Whatever variety you select from our product list, we guarantee its availability.
