kiwano melon

Kiwano Horned Melon

Some describe the flavour of kiwano melons as a cross between a cucumber, zucchini, and a kiwi. The more ripe it gets, it’ll take on a flavour close to a banana.

How to Select and Store: Kiwano melons should have a bright orange rind. Avoid any with bruises or overly soft spots. The Kiwano or horned melon is soft to touch when ripe. Store melons on the counter for up to 3 days.

To prepare kiwano: Cut the melon in half and scoop out the green seedy flesh. You can eat the seeds like cucumber seeds, but some prefer to eat the jelly-like flesh and discard the seed.
