Winter Fruit Surprises:

Kiwano
Kiwano

Kiwano (African Horned Melon). Usually this time of the year, it is citrus & guava in the garden, and not much else. I was quite surprised yesterday when Della found some of these guys lying ripe on the back slope where they had sprung up as weeds from the sugar cane mulch we spread to keep it moist last summer. They have a refreshing taste – something like a sweet cucumber. I WILL be saving some seeds to plant them again next year. Good groundcover too.
