For over 3,000 years, this African horned melon has been fascinating the produce world. The spiky, golden-orange shell encases a soft, succulent, seed-filled emerald green interior. Once grown only in New Zealand, Melissa’s Kiwano Melons are now grown in California as well. Consumers are drawn to these intriguing, yet versatile tropical fruits whose look easily captures attention. The spiky, orange shells of kiwano melons encase a soft, succulent bright green flesh with edible seeds.

Melissa’s Kiwano Melons are mild in flavor and similar in taste to juicy, seed-filled cucumbers. The flavor is reminiscent of a cucumber, with notes of melon and lime. This fruit's versatility extends beyond simply eating it. Cut in half and scoop out the translucent jelly-like flesh to create a unique, visually-striking serving cup. Once peeled, Melissa’s Kiwano Melons can be tossed in fresh fruit salads, salsas, smoothies or served as a garnish with roasted meats.

No need to refrigerate. Ripe horned melons will have a bright orange shell. Avoid any bruising or soft spots.
