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.
