A fruit native to South America that is also known as the melon pear or "melumber" as they are said to taste like a cross between a melon (honeydew or cantaloupe) and a cucumber. Pepinos are high in potassium and are full of vitamin A, B and C. Pepinos are smooth and round/ovaly - similar to a large goose egg - and are known for their light yellow skin with purple lines. They are found often in Peru and Chile, and have been exported to many other countries - they have just recently found their way to Britain.
