Kiwano

Commodity Overview

Kiwano has the subtle taste of cucumber, banana and lime. It has an oblong shape and often reaches 4 to 6 inches in length. It is golden orange when ripe with white seeds encased in a juicy green pulp and a jellylike texture. Cut off the spikes and the entire fruit -- skin and all -- is edible. Slice into rounds and eat out of hand. Or, scoop out the pulp to use in sorbets, smoothies or salad dressing. It is also called horned melon. Kiwano is available year-round from New Zealand and California.
