Paw paw or papaya, Apr 3, 8:59pm
Sorry I'm not in Auckland but our local fruit shop (Totally Fresh) sells them most of the year so I would imagine with the bigger population in Auckland you would be able to find them easily. Try ringing the large supermarkets maybe and then specialised fruit shops.

Readily available at most of the Asian fruit shops. I also saw plenty at the Glenfield Sunday market last time I was in Auckland.

Wrong. Paw Paw are larger than Papaya, and Papaya have a redder flesh.
Paw Paw - Nth American
Papaya - Sth American

You are so right, my apologies, I have learned something

They should be in the supermarket? We seem to get pawpaw more than papaya, which is a shame as I like papaya better - esp with fresh lime juice squeezed over nom nom nom
