Kiwano, Yellow Round (Cucumis metuliferus)
This is the extremely unique yellow version of our favorite melon, the Orange Kiwano! When ripe, the round yellow fruit is about 3” in diameter. The cucumberesque flesh is juicy, sweet and delicious with a flavor that is often compared to banana and lemon. Mature vines reach 5 to 10 feet and may be trellis-grown. This little yellow fella is supremely unique, totally cute and just plain fun!
