African Horned Cucumber

$ 3.50

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
