What is kiwano?

Today I tried something new. I saw a spiky orange fruit at the supermarket that I never saw before. So I decided to try it out.

It turned out to be Kiwano, also known as the horned melon. ┬áIt’s a fruit from the melon cucumber family. It’s orange with spikes on the outside and green on the inside.

It’s high in magnesium and vitamin C. I thought it tasted like a mixture of cucumber and kiwi.

I used the kiwano in my breakfast bowl this morning. And even though I still need to get used to the taste, it combined very well with banana, rolled oats and blueberries.
