Papaya can be a good money-maker. Ripe fruits as well as green fruits have a market. The green fruits are used as vegetable in dishes like “tinola” and some other preparations. They are also good for making pickles.The ripe fruits, of course, have a very good local market. The Sarian Farm is very convenient to visit for those farming east of Manila.
