    Solanum muricatum - Pepino Dulce. A South American native, s. muricatum is grown for its sweet, edible fruits. UNFORTUNATELY the pepinos don't travel well so may be hard to track down in the UK. FORTUNATELY you can grow your own in a greenhouse/sunny conservatory, the taste is said to resemble a mix of honeydew melon and cucumber.
