What am I?
I am an exotic fruit that is known for my spiky orange skin and jelly-like green flesh inside. I have a unique flavor that is often described as a mix between cucumber, banana, and lime. Can you guess what I am?
Where I grow
I grow in warm, subtropical regions like Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. I am usually grown on a vine and need plenty of sunshine and water to grow big and juicy. I am also a very strong fruit that can withstand drought and high temperatures.
After I'm picked
After I'm picked, I am usually allowed to ripen at room temperature for a few days. When I am ripe, my skin will turn from green to a bright orange color, and my flesh will become soft and jelly-like. Then, I can be cut open and eaten, or used in a variety of dishes, like salads, smoothies, and desserts.
Did you guess... Kiwano
Did you guess that I am the kiwano? That's right! Kiwano is a unique and exotic fruit that is not very well-known, but it's definitely worth trying. It has a refreshing taste that's perfect for hot summer days. So next time you see a spiky, orange fruit at the grocery store, give it a try!
