So there I was turning the contents of the fruit bowl
into fruit salad, and I chopped a very ripe papaya open and scooped out the seeds.
Seeds. The obvious next thought was "I wonder if I could grow them?"
I know nothing about papaya beyond them being on the cheap in Asda and tasting nice. Pass a netbook, and Google
Yes, I could germinate them
, though it would take about a month
But the results
might be rather big, and not like this climate.
I could eat them.
Me? Cookery? Salads? Who, me?
They're about to be rescued from the food waste.
Edit: when I moved on to the mango, I carefully avoided any such thoughts.
Further edit: papaya and friends, ready to cost me zero WW points.
