Refreshingly unique Peruvian Pepino

Refreshingly unique Peruvian Pepino

Rumor has it that this melon fruit has been around for more than 6000 years. It is native to the highlands of Peru, where a unique yet rich diversity of food can be found at various elevation levels. Pepino grows at sea level.

The flesh of this fruit is fragrant, very sweet and juicy and combines tastes of cantaloupe and honeydew with a hint behind all that sweetness of an interesting semi-neutral flavor that is somewhat hard to identify.
