I got this at Berkeley Bowl a couple of days ago:



This tropical fruit is like something out of Aliens. It's full of jelly-covered plant embryos suspended in a matrix of some connective tissue. When I squeeze the melon, the embryos pop out of the matrix.

Yes, but how do the embryos *taste*? :)

They taste like awesome. :-) It's hard to analogize to another fruit, but some describe it as akin to kiwi jelly. If it's not ripe it just tastes like cucumber... I made the mistake of eating one too early once.

If only you could do this with pomegranates.
