Its taste is between a melon and cucumber. You get it in expensive stores. It is loaded with vitamins and minerals. It grows on an annual creeper. What is the name of the fruit? What are its benefits? Image by Hans from pixabay

You are right. It also has vitamin A and E and zinc. What can it cure and prevent?

Oh, I've eaten those before, but I can't remember what it was called. Right now my brain isn't too good at drawing information.

@stbrians Actually no. It's just that I love to eat exotic fruits and I'm always trying new ones to see what they are like.
