The Horned Melon
If you see this fruit in your grocery store and have any temptation of eating it...resist. Also known as the African Horned Cucumber or Hedged Gourd, this member of the cucumber-melon family functions much better as a decoration than a food.

If you do buy it, don't ruin your new and eccentric decor by slicing it in half. The interior looks like ninja-turtle ooze and the taste, though bland, is nothing to warrant more than tootsie-pop lick. Granted, maybe i just got a bad one.
