Horned Melon
Day 26


A Different Fruit A Day Personal Health Challenge

 


The horned melon is also known as the kiwano, African horned cucumber or melon, jelly melon, hedged gourd, melano, and blowfish fruit. It is an annual vine in the cucumber and melon family.

Horned melon connoisseurs describe the flavor of the slimy green interior in this fruit as a cross between cucumber, zucchini, and kiwifruit. Unfortunately, this fruit is filled with entirely too many seeds for Oma’s palate!

Nevertheless, the horned melon is a good source of vitamin C, potassium and iron. Each fruit is approximately 91 Calories

Interesting fact: This fruit which looks like it belongs in space, was featured in an episode of Star Trek.
