I cut one open and ate it last night (can’t upload photos from my phone, so will do so when I get to my laptop).
Interior was a deep green - beautiful contrast with the orange skin - and filled with seeds.
Scooped out a spoonful. The scooping broke the membranes around some of the seeds, so I was looking at a watery, gelatinous mass, and seeds.
Scent? I’m not sure. Light and clean more than anything. Taste? First was a bit of the juice. Definitely tartish, but not horribly so (I don’t like tart), light, maybe almost kiwi-tart. I didn’t taste cucumber, but it could have been there. Not bland, but not showy.
Next was the rest of the spoonful with the seeds. The membranes are very…slimy? I know that’s not a typically appealing texture, but I didn’t find it off-putting. Think of a ball of tapioca.
Biting down caused the juice to burst out and then there was the seed. Reminded me a bit of a pomegranate seed in consistency / crunchiness. A bit fibrous, almost no flavor.
There was a high seed to juice ratio, maybe 40%? I wanted more of the juice and less of the seed.
The flavor was…haunting. Not quite tangible. I’ve been thinking about it all night, wanting to try another one.
Verdict: positive and intriguing.
