43 New-to-Me ... #37 Kiwano

Next up for my 43 New-to-Me birthday challenge is #37, kiwano. This fruit is part of the cucumber and melon family, but it's the exterior that made me buy it.

I like cucumbers and I like melons, but I wasn't crazy about the kiwano. To me, it tasted more like banana than melon. I don't love bananas. It definitely had a squash taste, but the texture was unfamiliar. The jelly simply did not want to separate from the seeds. The seeds are edible, but too large for me to want to eat. I gave the kiwano a 4. Steve said 3 and Trevor said 5. So not the worst thing I've tried by far, but not the best either.


  1. And see the look of it alone would scare me off! LOL!! I loveeeeeeeeee your page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. That thing looks scary! LOL We tried a pomelo the other day. It was just a bit more bitter than a grapefruit.

  3. Hmmmmmm, I think I would have stopped when I saw the jelly. You are a brave woman, Cindy!
