From Parrita we export
two varieties to the world
Hybrid Variety Poccocí
Our cooperative for many years has worked with the Poccocí Hybrid, with which we manage 50 hectares per year, and it is sown in different stages to maintain stable production throughout the year. The Pococí hybrid papaya, also known as the perfect papaya, IS a scented fruit, with an intense color, sweet taste and a convenient size that cannot be lacking in the family diet and that to this day is one of the favorites nationwide and international.
Its total exterior maturation is pleasant to the eye and its pulp is reddish orange, sweet like few others and quite consistent. This variety has a pleasant and smooth aroma, an added value that allows it to position itself among other varieties. One of the characteristics that the international markets like is that it has excellent fruit uniformity, ideal for packaging and demonstration on shelves, since it has no variation in formats.
Our main export product is papaya, an extraordinary tropical fruit, of great nutritional value. This exquisite fruit provides many benefits, including:
It is a good diuretic (water)
Being a fleshy type fruit, it has abundant water (90%).
Increases natural defenses (vitamin C)
“Papaya provides vitamin C in such high amounts that 100 grams of food covers the recommended daily amount for an average adult. It provides even more vitamin C than orange! ”.
Improves skin health (vitamin A)
Papaya covers 25% of the recommended daily amount of this nutrient for the average adult. A nutrient that improves the health of the skin, mucous membranes and the immune system.
Antioxidant function (lycopene)
Lycopene is a carotenoid that contributes to the coloration of papaya and has an antioxidant effect.
Prevention of cardiovascular diseases (flavonoids)
Another of its compounds is the flavonoid cryptoxanthin, which “acts as an antioxidant against free radicals, responsible for premature aging of cells, flavonoids protect from the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, thus helping to prevent cardiovascular diseases.
Restores the acid-base balance of the body (minerals)
Papaya contains minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus, which help restore the body’s acid-base balance. Luengo points out that it provides a somewhat higher amount of magnesium and potassium.
