KIWANO This horned melon is nicknamed blowfish fruit. You can spot it in your supermarket by its orange skin. Its lime-green flesh tastes like a mix of cucumber, kiwi, and banana. "Cut it in half and squeeze from the bottom so that small, jelly-like sacs come to the surface," suggests Dimitriou. "You can lick or suck up each sac of fruit and seed." Rich in vitamin C, iron, and potassium and made mostly of water, they're ideal for rehydrating on a warm day.
The Lychee is the sole member of the genus Litchi in the soapberry family, Sapindaceae. It is a tropical and subtropical fruit tree native to southern China, Taiwan and Southeast Asia, and now cultivated in many parts of the world.
