I often get some type of bok choy (which I learned comes in all different sizes and shapes) or eggplant (again with a wide variety of styles). For a couple of weeks they had grapefruit for a really good price, and Hubby Tony and I enjoyed it each day until the season ran out. Then there was asparagus for much cheaper than the other stores in town. We ate a lot of that for a couple of weeks. Sometimes I take a chance on other assorted other fruits and vegetables (like yuca).
Today's exotic find was yellow papaya. I've eaten the fruit dried and in salads, but I'd never seen them whole. Unsure if they needed a lot of work to process I put a smallish one into my bag and brought it home.

This afternoon I cut up the papaya, but didn't have time to do anything about the seeds. I put them in a small container and placed the container in the refrigerator until tomorrow. Another culinary adventure awaits!
