Yes, I'm not sure if they can be frozen. I would guess they could be...the fruit isn't like papaya (which cannot be frozen).

Yes fruit does nt freeze well any way and has to be defrosted slowly in the fridge.

Yes, some fruit do freeze well, and others just turn to much. Papaya fruit will turn to mush, if frozen.

I do know gooeberrys blackberries raspberries loganan berries etc and black currents red currents etc freeze the best seems currents and berries are the best.

You could always make a smoothy drink from Papaya if turns to mush ?
