Kiwano

The fruit's common name is kiwano melon, and it may also be called African horned cucumber, jelly melon, hedged gourd, melano, kiwano zucchini or African horned pumpkin . When ripe, the thick outer skin of a kiwano melon is bright orange and covered in small spiny projections or horns. The fruit itself resembles a large cucumber with many deep ridges running down its length. It has crisp but tender flesh that can be eaten like summer squash. Kiwano melons typically weigh around 2 to 3 pounds each. Depending on the cultivar, kiwano melons are green or orange when unripe. Their flavor is similar to that of a cucumber, with a tart and tangy taste. They are popular in salads, drinks, desserts and dishes where their jelly-like flesh can be used as a garnish. In addition to being eaten fresh, the seeds and young shoots of the kiwano plant can be boiled or steamed and eaten as a vegetable. In certain parts of Africa, the seeds are roasted, ground into a powder and turned into porridge. The pulp is also used to make alcoholic beverages. The fruit's thick skin prevents moisture from escaping and is one reason kiwano melons can be kept at room temperature for several days without becoming overripe. Although the rind of a kiwano is typically inedible, it can be made into a natural dye that ranges in color from pink to orange-red. Kiwano melons were originally cultivated for their seeds, which were roasted and eaten as a delicacy by the Maasai people of East Africa. The fruit is now grown commercially in New Zealand, Jamaica, and several African countries. In addition to being eaten fresh, the seeds and young shoots of the kiwano plant can be boiled or steamed and eaten as a vegetable. In certain parts of Africa, the seeds are roasted, ground into a powder and turned into porridge. The pulp is also used to make alcoholic beverages. Kiwano melon is an exotic, peculiar-looking fruit from the central and southern regions of Africa. When ripe, the thick outer skin of a kiwano melon is bright orange and covered in small spiny projections or horns. It's hard to believe that inside is soft, orange flesh with black seeds throughout. The flavor of the fruit is often described as a mix of banana, cucumber, and zesty lime; kiwano melon can be eaten fresh but also added to salads or juice drinks. You can also make kiwano melon smoothies or other recipes that call for oranges, cucumbers, or bananas.
