African Horned Cucumber
120 days. (Cucumis metuliferus) Also known as Kiwano or Jelly Melon
Very unusual fruit with spiny “horns.” The green-yellow skin turns a bright deep orange when ready to harvest, and the pulp inside the fruit resembles lime green Jell-O. Native to Africa, it is hardy and easy to grow; can be grown just about anywhere you can grow melons. Beautiful vine and fruit! Tiny seed.
Its fruits have a flavor reminiscent of pomegranate and citrus and are high in vitamin C.
Contains 15 heirloom seeds
