goku - chewing

Unusual fruit

At the grocery store yesterday I picked up two melons I'd never tried on a whim. One is a kiwano, or African horned melon, and the other is one whose name I can't remember.

The kiwano is said to taste like a mix of cucumber, lime, and banana, to taste better when it's slightly overripe, and to benefit from a sprinkling of brown sugar. So I'll probably wait until this weekend to give it a try.

I can't remember the other one's name, but it started with a "p". It's small - maybe the size of my fist or a wee bit bigger - oblong, and the skin is smooth and thin. It's vaguely the color of an apricot, although not the texture. Anyone out there know?
Koumyou - hee


OK, how coincidental is this? I'm at the ref desk at the moment because the ref staff are in a meeting, and a girl just came up asking where the book Manga! Manga! is. And I could tell her that it's currently in my apartment. XD I'm bringing it back tomorrow because she's just starting to do research on a thesis that has to do with manga's influence in South American countries (er, or something like that - my leaky brain is not retaining details like that right now.)
