Trying new things…

Pepino

Originally uploaded by CleverGirlBek

Every week, or at least when we remember, boy and I try to sample a new fruit or vegetable. This is Pepino melon. We tried this when baldguy was in Kauai in April. It is a lovely creamy-pale yellow with dark purple eggplanty lightening bolts….

I was hoping it would be intensely flavorful and delicious… I think it has potential but isn’t so thrilling as a stand alone fruit/melon…. It tastes like a watery melony cucumber- very very mild… I put a little fresh ground Pink Himalayan salt on my half and it got a bit better… I imagine this would be fabulous with bacon…

Boy took one bite and went back to snapping pictures… He did declare that this melon looks like “mama’s belly”… Good to know that he sees purply striations on a melon and thinks of my lovely stretch marks…. (hey, I had polyhydramnios…it happens…they aren’t that purple any more though…)

You can find more info on the Pepino melon here….
