The following papaya desserts from the Huila, Tolima, and Cundinamarca departments are very good. In Colombia, we have both the native large papaya as well as the small Hawaiian ones. We are a very large consumer of both varieties. They are great with Cuajada or ice cream. The papaya must be completely green for the first, meaning yellowish on the inside with absolutely no red. Even if papayas are not your favorite foods, this will become one of them.
