The brown and hairy exterior of this egg-shaped fruit doesn't look promising, but inside it's a different story - sweet, yielding, bright green flesh, prettily dotted with black seeds. The flavor is distinctive but hard to pin down - some say it's like strawberry, others say pineapple.
How to Select
Go for firm fruit that gives slightly when gently squeezed. Avoid wrinkled and bruised fruit.
How to Store
If ripe, keep in the fridge - they'll last around at week. If under-ripe, keep at room temperature.
How to Prepare
Peel off the skin with a knife or vegetable peeler, then chop or slice. Alternatively, to eat it as a snack, cut in half and scoop out the flesh with a teaspoon.
