Horned Melon

I love Berkeley Bowl.  Not because they have great prices, but because they have random crap like this.

I passed by this and literally said “What the hell is that!  What the hell ticked that fruit off that much that it has horns!?”  

it’s called Kiwano.  Google it.  It’s everywhere.

I’m not sure if it was riped, but tasted like bitter banana.  Those seeds do not help the taste either.  $5 well spent?  I don’t think so.
