How to Eat a thorn melons

Thorn melons are dryland fruits about 3 inches in length covered with spikes/thorns

Making it tricky to handle. Normally the surest way to tell that the fruit is ready is by the colour, which goes orange as it ripens. The other way also serves as a means of making it easier to handle

Is by slicing off the thorns and you will get a yellow fluid flowing out from cuts.

Then you can slice the fruit open to consume the green flesh and seeds
