Fancy Kawano with your dinner tonight?
December 14, 2017
The Kawano fruit remembles something straight out of the prehistoric era. With a rugby ball shape and spines like a dinosaurs back, this fruit looks decidedy unfriendly.
However, cut into it and you will reveal nothing of the sort! Deliciously juicy and fresh, the flavour is not too dissimilar to a cucumber, although the edible seeds are much larger. The aftertaste leaves you with a hint of banana, which is quite odd but not unpleasant.
Add the kernals to a salad or mix into a salsa, the exotic nature of this fruit really stands out. Sprinkle onto a grilled steak or chop to experience a tangy contrast.
If you are curious to try the Kawano, we have them available here at Nurtured In Norfolk for two months only…so you best be kwikano!
