A true oddity, from its knobby orange skin to its bright green flesh. The jelly melon is a veining annual that can be grown practically anywhere, provided a warm season. Plants can produce up to 100 fruits on a single vine. Provide support for the tendrils to grab. Leaves and stems are hairy.
Bright orange, oval fruit to 6-9 inches, with numerous prominent spines. Flesh is bright green, watery, and with a slight sweetness, much like a banana with the texture of a cucumber. Very unusual, for sweet and savory and decorative dessert cups.
