    10. Heligan Pineapples
    Pineapples typically only grow in tropical environments, but cultivating them is a long-standing tradition in England and the Netherlands that began during the mid-17th century. Everyone wanted a taste of the delicious fruit, and pineapples became a symbol of opulence and luxury! Gardeners would use hothouses, which mimicked the climate of the fruit’s natural habitat.

    9. Vomit Fruit
    Nicknamed the “vomit fruit,” “cheese fruit,” “starvation fruit,” and “dog dumpling,” the noni (Morinda citrifolia) is a pungent member of the coffee family that is said to taste like rotten cheese. Yikes! I hope that was descriptive enough…

    8. Yubari King Melon
    Yubari king melons are an extremely rare cross between two already-rare types of cantaloupe that only grow in northern Japan’s Yubari region, on the island of Hokkaido. A pair of Yubari king melons sold for a record-breaking $27,000 (¥3 million) in 2016 at auction, defeating the previous record of around $23,300 (¥2.5 million) for a pair. The following year, a set of melons went for over $29,000 (¥3.1 million), once again setting a new record for the most expensive Yubari king melons ever sold.

    7. Buddha’s Hand
    The Buddha’s hand, also called the fingered citron, is a strangely-shaped citrus fruit segmented into finger-like sections. There are at least six variations, including “open-hand” types with splayed segments, “closed-hand” varieties with the ‘fingers’ kept together, and half-fingered types. It’s one of the oldest citrus fruits and is believed to originate from China or northeastern India.

    6. Dekopon
    The dekopon is a seedless cross between the Kiyomi tangor, a mandarin-orange hybrid, and the ponkan, a large Asian mandarin. Known for its indescribable deliciousness and sweetness, it was first created in 1972 at a government research station in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan.

    5. Monster Fruit
    Monstera deliciosa, also known as the monster fruit or the Swiss cheese plant, is a tropical flowering species hailing from a native region that extends from southern Mexico into Panama. Its fruit resembles a green ear of corn maize covered in hexagonal scales, which fall off as it ripens, releasing an aromatic scent into the air that’s been described as a combination of banana and pineapple.

    4. Miyazaki Mango
    Miyazaki mangoes grow in Japan’s Miyazaki prefecture, on the island of Kyushu. They’re given extra special care when it comes to ensuring the perfect temperature and amount of sunlight, and are harvested when ripened fruit falls off the tree and into an awaiting net.

    3. Screw Pine Fruit
    The screw pine (Pandanus) is a genus consisting of at least 750 species and is not a pine or a palm, though it vaguely resembles the latter. It’s endemic to tropical and subtropical Old World regions between Hawaii and West Africa and thrives in various altitudes, from coastal elevations to as high as 10,000 feet (3,048 meters), and they vary in height from 3.3 feet (1 meters) to 66 feet (20 meters).

    2. Densuke Watermelon
    Densuke watermelons, also called black watermelons, are arguably the world’s most expensive. They’re extremely rare, only growing on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, and are distinctively darker than traditional watermelons. Their flesh, which is a little lighter in color than the average watermelon, is said to also taste sweeter.

    1. African Horned Cucumber
    The African horned cucumber (Cucumis metuliferus), also called the horned melon, jelly melon, kiwano, and a few other names, is hard to miss with its spiky, bright orange exterior. It’s one of the oldest fruits in the world, originating over 3,000 years ago in sub-Saharan Africa, and grows in the wild across the southern part of the continent, while being cultivated in Malawi, Sierra Leone, Kenya, and in other parts of the world.
