Sounds really good. What kind of melon could I substitute if I didn't have the kiwano? I haven't tasted one so not sure what would be similar lol.
Growing edible and ornamental tropicals and subtropicals and many night bloomers on 4 acres in zone 9a. Learning to live a more self sustainable lifestyle with chickens and other livestock.

Kiwano has a unique taste. To me it taste like sour/cucumber with a slight sweetness, and tropical tangy note.
