In case no one else knows what this is:

So I tried that pepino.  Verdict?  It's very blah tasting... maybe mine's not particularly ripe.  However, the purple streaks are supposed to "itensify" when it ripens, and mine's pretty purpley right now.  It tastes like a bland melon with a bit of pear consistency.  Apparently pepino means cucumber in Spanish.  Makes sense.. very mild flavor.  Also, despite looking like a melon, it's a nightshade, and I can see the comparison to eggplant in texture.

Here's hoping for a more exciting jicama review - which, considering it goes well with rice and beans and mexican plates, I should love.
