Native Forest Organic Papaya Chunks -- 14 oz
Great Taste, Dented Cans
These Papaya chunks are delicious, are in BPA-free cans, and the country of origin is Sri Lanka. The downside is that about 20 percent of the cans are dented. Vitacost cannot be faulted for this except for inspection prior to shipping because this same product in a local health food store has about the same percentage of dented cans. Vitacost was excellent with respect to replacing the dented cans (because I wouldn't eat them or even give them away), but the manufacturer, Native Forest, should have a much better inspection process so that dented cans are not shipped to retailers.

I can't imagine how anyone could rate this 5 stars let alone ONE. It should get 0 (ZERO) but there is no option for that.
The papaya is packed in PINEAPPLE juice, so what you get is orange, mushy, very tangy pineapple chunks that taste nothing like papaya.
The texture is mushy, or just gross.
I ate a couple chunks then fed the rest to my compost pile. Waste of money.
If you really want papaya flavor, you WON'T like this...seriously.

We don't have papaya in our local stores very often, and when we do, its very expensive & not the greatest quality! This canned papaya is wonderful, love it in my fruit salad. My picky eater grandson even likes it!
