Home grown

I spotted this in my Granny’s ex-neighbour’s fruitbowl, when they invited my aunt and me to coffee this morning. I couldn’t work out why they had an eggplant mixed in with the apples and bananas, or why it was so pretty. It turns out it’s a Melon Pear, and neither a pear nor a very close relative of a melon (nor an eggplant)! It tasted a bit like a honeydew melon, crossed with a cucumber.
