Quality and ripeness
A ripe pepino is yellow and feels a bit soft when light pressure is applied.
Pepino tastes of melon and pear but the flesh is more firm and less juicy. Peel the skin off and remove the core with seeds. Consume immediately or sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent discolouration. Combines with both sweet and savoury (meat, fish) dishes.
The pepino is a plant from the nightshade family. Cultivated pepino is larger (10-20 cm) than wild ones (7 cm). There are seed containing and seedless varieties.
