Tynung Papayas are football-shaped, elongated fruit. They have a green outer skin that turns yellow as the fruit matures while the inner flesh is pink-red in color. This type of papaya contains numerous small and round black seeds that sit in a large central cavity. Though the seeds are edible they have a peppery taste and are often removed before the fruit is eaten. The fruit tastes sweet, juicy and has a melon-like flavor.
