Melon horned, Kiwano, single piece

Category: chile, fresh fruit,

  • Horn melon produce spiky points throughout its bright yellow and orange, mottled skin. The interior contains a rich, jelly-like, lime green flesh studded with white seeds reminiscent of cucumber seeds. The melon has a sweet and tart, banana-lime taste. A flavor that is enhanced when chilled. The brighter the orange skin, the sweeter the flesh of the fruit. The Horn melon is the size of a large pear and generally weighs less than one pound. Both the seeds and the flesh are edible.

  • Horn melon can be used in both sweet and savoury recipes with or without its seeds. Use in sweet preparations such as ice creams, sorbets, syrups and fruit salads. To remove the seeds press the interior flesh through a fine-mesh sieve. Use the seed free juice to flavor cocktails, smoothies, dressings and sauces. The hollowed shell makes an excellent and unique serving dish. Its flavour pairs well with melon, passion fruit, banana, coconut, honey and vanilla yoghurt or ice cream.

  • Horn melon will keep at room temperature?
