Melon Pear

Botanical Name
Solanum muricatum

Melon pear is most easily recognised by its cream-yellow fruit and outer surface, which is covered by deep purple vertical streaks. The fruit itself is similar in taste to melon. Melon pear grows on a small shrub which can grow up to 1m in height.  Melon pear is not very frost resistant and would do better planted in a container in colder climates. Melon pear can be used in fruit salads.
