Solo Papayas


I went to the Supermarket last week, hoping to buy some fruits. I haven't bought Papayas for a long long time, because they aren't a favourite in my family. I remembered Papayas as a very cheap fruit because it grows just about any where if the seeds are just thrown on some soil. My mum used to grow them just outside the garage gates as some shades for some plants outside. They grow fast too.


But seems like those were the days. The papayas I saw at the Supermarket, were more expensive than the mangoes I bought. Small Solo Papayas cost $2.90 each! These ones are so small - probably is good for one or two servings only. Is it really so expensive everywhere else?
