You can eat them at 3 different stages, they have a long shelf life (3 months or so) at green mature stage. If you pick at smaller immature light green stage, they will taste like Cucumbers. If you wait for Mature Green stage it will have a slightly tangy cucumber fruity flavor. Waiting until orange will give a slightly sweeter and more of a fruity flavor.

African Horned melon is a great drought and heat tolerant vegetable to grow. Disease resistance and productivity has always been excellent. I added it to my must grow list. I use it in mature stage mixed with other fruits like strawberries in a fruit salad.

I did not know this. I guess I only grew them to the smaller immature stage. KGG's look so much bigger than mine, I figured it was a factor of a longer growing conditions, but I wasn't sure.

I didn't know either. I will let some ripen up then...

But I love them when they're still a light green color.
They're crispy, fresh, and have a delicate sweet flavor.

My family is raving over them. :p

What about yours?

Took some pics of the Armenian leaves today. I see 2 distinct leaf patterns on the vines. 1 is more rounded, the other is more oak-leaf shaped.

Yes it does, TX!! Looks like maybe mine didn't come up, because I don't see those type of leaves/vines on my Dog Pen Garden. :( Except maybe for the last pic.... but thinking it might be a pumpkin vine. Bummer, will try again next year.

I am IN LOVE w/ the Woodle Orange... look what my 8-year-old picked from the 1 plant tonight!! And it was a record-breaking 108 here today!!! :eek::mad: the top 2 on top left are Brandywines, & my son found a red tater ,too!! Haven't even bothered to try to dig them up, too darn hot to do it. Was still 90 degrees at 11:30 PM!!! Supposed to be even hotter tomorrow, 110 is the forecast.

Thanks. Feel kinda guilty, as so many people near me have lost their crops & gardens due to this horrible heat. 110 now.
