5 Bizarre Fruits and Vegetables

From a horned vegetable, to a rare kind of citric fruit, and to a hairy kind of tropical fruit, I’ve counted five of the most bizarre fruits and vegetables you can see in this planet.

Horned melon.

It is a vine in the melon and cucumber family. It fruit has a horn-like structure, that’s why they called it horned melon. Ripe horned melon is yellow-orange in skin and lime-green with a jelly-like structure in flesh. It has a sour taste and a texture similar to a cucumber. It is rich in vitamin C and dietary fiber.

Buddha’s Hand.

It is an unusually shaped citron fruit that resembles a human hand. Because it is a citric fruit it means that it may be sour or sweet in taste. It has two types, the “open-palm” which is like an open palm and “closed-palm” which looks like a close fist. It is originated in Far East probably in India.
