Jelly Melon, Kiwano Rund
120 days. Round version of our popular Jelly Melon. Fruit is about 3 inches in diameter, covered in intriguing points. The skin is white to ivory colored. Flesh is juicy, sweet and delicious. The flavor is often compared to banana and lemon. Vines reach 5 to 10 feet, may be trellis-grown. Very cute and just plain fun!
