Originally from the Andes, it is a fruit with a delicate flavour.
The shape is oval and, in terms of appearance, it resembles a melon but is made unmistakable by the smooth skin with purple streaks on a yellow-orange base.
Once opened, it has a compact pulp with a lively light-yellow colour.
The seeds are completely edible: try them roasted in a pan!

STORAGE: Recommended between 10 and 12° C.
