The papayas in my yard are huge (1-2 feet long) and I always hated throwing away those seeds. Until I learned there were all sorts of things to do with them and this is one.


  1. I had to enter 2 ingredients.
  2. Take seeds from your papaya. Rinse them.
  3. Dry in a dehydrator.
  4. OR.
  5. Spread on silpat lined sheet and dehydrate in a low (250F) oven until dry. It may take more than the hour in cooking time. Be sure they are really dry. I frequently turn the oven off and leave them overnight.
  6. Use just like peppercorns in a pepper mill or grind in a mortar and pestle.
  7. O yeah, enjoy the papaya fruit!
