Cucumis metuliferus Jelly Melon
Native to Africa, Kiwano Jelly Melon is an unusual heirloom with horn-like spines and greenish-yellow skin that turns bright orange when mature. The pulpy flesh resembles lime Jell-O and has a tart, tropical flavor and texture similar to a cucumber. Fruits are ready to pick when stems turn from green to brown and begin to dry. Pkt. 10
