Belize exporting $20 million worth of PAPAYA

** We export this variety, which is small and rugby ball size. Foreign supermarkets like them as they sell quicker as they weigh less. In Belize we have a superior variety for local consumption and farm growing, which is about four times bigger than these export types. I like the native Belize one best.


I got this figure from John Carr of the Agriculture Report magazine.

She compared the pokeberry results with those she got from Virginia creeper berries (the creeper won, but its downside, as far as Carroll is concerned, is that it isn't a foodstuff). Grace pronounced the whole experiment "pretty cool."
