From internet descriptions and photos I'd say it needs ripening, should be smoothly orange. Ripen on the counter, not in the refrigerator. Cold causes the pulp to break down.


~Silk - good to know. All I could find said that it can be eaten at any point of ripeness, but not what it looked like.

Never heard of New Zealand horned melon - and I'm a New Zealander, as you know.


Big Dot - after I bought it I researched what its looks like inside (equally repellent). It also goes by “kiwano, also African horned cucumber or melon, jelly melon, hedged gourd, melano” - Wikipedia
