Kiwano horned melons are a melon native to Africa. They have a refreshing taste like pomegranates.
Kiwano melons should be bright orange. The skin should be free of any bruising or decay. Kiwanos should be stored at room temperature. They should be consumed within a few days once fully ripened.
Cut the melon in half. Gently squeeze out the seeds. Most people suck the flesh off of the seeds. The taste is very refreshing. They do well in fruit smoothies or as an addition to dressings. If you want to try something very adventurous, try some of the juice in a cocktail!
