We took a trip to the grocery store this week to search for interesting objects to try in macro and came across this. On the outside, it is pumpkin orange with a delicate pattern and little spikes all over. On the inside, it is neon green with tons of seeds. It has a mild flavor something like a kiwi with a bit of a bananna on the side.
Cucumis metuliferus, also known as the horned melon, kiwano, african cucumber, jelly melon, or blowfish fruit, is an annual vine in the cucumber and melon family. Native to Sub-Saharan Africa, it is one of the few sources of water during the dry season in the Kalahari Desert.
