KOREAN GINSENG WINTER MELON

06 AUGUST 2010, FRIDAY

Saw this so called Korean Ginseng Winter Melon being sold at one of the fruit stalls in the morning market which was strongly recommended by the seller. Mommy decided to give it a try despite it was quite expensive selling at RM8.00 per small fruit.

(for 冬瓜/winter melon in Korean)

Let me just illustrate a little about this fruit. As you can see from the picture, it is oval shape instead of round and the size was actually very much smaller than our usual winter melon. To me, it tasted the same despite that the fruit seller kept saying that it has the taste of ginseng which I don't think so; and the texture is rather hard as compared to the normal fruit.
Nothing special about it but if you happened to see one for the very first time, just like me, is always no harm trying something new.
