Monster Melons

Kiwano Melons
Rambutans, Longans and other decorative fruits or candies if desired

Despite their intimidating spikes, Kiwano Melons have a soft shell that yields easily to a knife.

Simply carve the melons to create faces or designs, and then slice off the melon bottoms so they stand up straight.

The slippery, seedy green flesh inside will slide out of the melon and makes a great base for your display!

Great decorative items include longans, which resemble eyeballs, and rambutans, which have skin that can easily be shaped into eyebrows, mustaches and more.
