Kharbooza, or Musk melons range in size from large orange to a volleyball. Some Musk melons have a distinct musk smell, which is how they earned their musky moniker. The rind of a Kharbooza is where much of the scent is derived. The flesh can vary in color from white to a golden hue. Kharbooza has a bland flavor.
Kharbooza, or Musk melon is available year-round.
Kharbooza is the Hindi and Urdu word for Musk melon, known botanically as Cucumis melo. The melon is distinguished by its colorful, tiger-striped rind and bitter flesh.
Most Kharbooza is eaten cooked with spices. Cut the melon in half, and slice. The flesh can be cut away from the rind and added to dishes.
Kharbooza melons are native to India and were first cultivated in the 1600s. Musk melons grow in northern and central India. The taste is highly dependent on the weather conditions and poor conditions can result in a bitter or watery tasting melon.
