One of the English teachers had this on her desk. I'd never seen one before. Cucumis metuliferus, apparently tastes like lime banana jelly. It turns yellow when ripe. The fruit with most magnesium. Good for reducing hypertension. Plus, you can make a "green curtain" and kill two bird with one stone.
("Green curtain" being a net-supported vine covering a window to save on air-conditioning costs.

That is one weird looking fruit - not sure I would go for lime banana flavor...but to each their own. I do like the look and love the cool advertisement

It's actually a pretty cool looking piece of fruit! I like that you added the guide that comes with it.

I find them tasty.
Couple years back I was on a mission to try everything once.

Have you tried durian? You're not allowed to eat them on public transit in some Asian countries because of the smell.

I've seen them, but never tried them. I think they were too expensive to experiment with.

New to me, too - but I'm always up for trying a fruit :) As interesting on the inside as the outside.

I sure does not look good for you! But photogenic. Cropped close, it would't even look like it is from this planet!
