Nara melon. An unpromising, low-growing, spiny shrub growing along the coast of south west Africa through Namibia. Both the fruit and the seed are edible. The ripe fruits are eaten raw and are prized for their high water content, or are made into a preserve or made into a vegetable version of biltong. The nuts are dried and used for making flour or eaten as they are.
