Papaya Crisp


Kumu Farms’ Papaya Fruit Crisp Recipe

Courtesy of Emanuela “Manu” Vinciguerra

Serves: 6 | Prep time: 30 minutes, plus about 1 hour of baking


  • 4 c. papaya, chopped
  • ¾ c. flour
  • ¾ c. sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ c. cold butter


Fill a casserole dish or individual ramekins with 4 c. chopped papaya. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Cut butter into bits and add to flour mixture, working it with your fingers or a fork until the streusel is crumbly.

Sprinkle the flour-butter streusel evenly over the top of the fruit. Bake at 375 degrees for a little less than an hour. Check periodically to make sure the crisp is bubbling and golden. Serve straight from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Note: If you like, substitute chopped banana, mango, strawberries, or blueberries for some of the papaya, keeping the ratio of fruit to streusel the same.
