Maradol Papaya: Origin and more

Who’s seeds where taken and spread throughout the Dominican Republic and Panama. Sharing all those nutrients with the rest of the continent. Making its way to the top of the most common fruits in the markets shelfs one step at a time. Now let’s talk about the Maradol Papaya. One famous variation in the Americas.


Where did it came from? Its origin dates to Cuba. The name, though. You got to know how it got its name. Location. Las Villas, a providence in the Caribbean Island. Harvested by a couple named Maria and Adolfo. If that doesn’t give away the origin of the name, let, me just put those two together for you. Mar-adol. Creative and romantic, right? Still a better love story than a certain teen vampire movie. Just kidding.

Nowadays it’s the most popular type of Papaya in Mexico and Costa Rica. So, coming from a small province in Cuba to reaching star status in other countries. Not too bad. I bet Maria and Adolfo would be proud of how far their creation back in the 1930’s has gone. It just goes to show how some people give flowers, and some give a whole new variation of fruits.
