The African Horned Cucumber

The African Horned Cucumber is a strange-looking ‘spiked’ fruit of yellowish tinge that grows in the South African wild and the Kalahari alike. Its exterior is marked by pointed fleshy projections and the interior boasts of a genius combination of greenish pulp containing white seeds. The African Horned Cucumber has potent antioxidant properties, boosts red blood cell production and controls blood sugar levels. It can be eaten raw, pickled or sun-dried to be added to a smoothie blend.
