Yeah, sucks doesn't it?  They will make it seem like they are organic, but you have to be very very clear about your asking and look them straight in the eye when you do.  Ask clearly multiple times and in different ways when in doubt.  People who grow organic will look like they eat only organic foods and put off a different vibe.  Replace your GMO papayas with bananas, as they're a lot easier to come by.

Also, we were talking about starting a campaign to make the big island a GMO free zone.  Don't know how long you'll be around here, but it's definitely something I'm looking to help make happen in the near future.

Just read that, seems I've definitely eaten some gmo papaya and that 'solo' variety is what I should stick to and avoid strawberry/rainbow/sunrise varieties. I hate Monsanto, so long as that company stands this country isn't free and its farmers are in danger.

Someone warned me about potential GMO in the papaya at the market! EEK! And I look into it a little and seems they introduced a lot of it and if I read correctly ALL Rainbow Papaya are GMO!? I've been eating a ton of GMO from the Kailua-Kona 6 day market. One lady said hers were organic and another said probably (bulls***ter, didn't have any idea or knew they weren't). Haven't asked the 3rd I frequent yet, but I find these people hard to trust and was wondering what the deal is with papaya here? They're so cheap they've been my staple for over a month and seems I may be jacking myself up. Not sure what to do cost wise if I remove these from my diet. Thanks for any help!

I should have thought of walmart... thank you!

Comment by Hannah Amanda on March 31, 2012 at 2:28pm

There is a farmers market on certain days in the international market. Also in china town the prices are pretty cheap for fruit but i always bought mine at walmart and sometimes foodland 

Comment by Jonathan Barlow on March 31, 2012 at 12:40pm

Can anyone recommend a good place to buy (or find) fruit on Oahu? I'm at waikiki beach but I'm willing to travel and explore the whole island for fruit.
