I saw these fruits lying around the supermarket that are roughly the size of an apple, though they are egg-shaped and streaked with purple. After some online research I found they are called pepino melon, though they are in fact not actually melons. That was good news for me as I don’t really enjoy melon all that much.
Well, they may not be related to melons, they sure do taste like them. They have a similar mouthfeel, texture and taste to a melon, which I think is quite watery. They just don’t have a thick rind, more like a chewy skin. Thicker than the skin of an apple at least. I’m sure that if you like melons you would enjoy these little fruits. I on the other hand was less impressed.
