ENZED EXOTICS
NEW ZEALAND GROWERS OF THE BEST, NATURALLY GROWN HORNED MELON ON EARTH.

Our Mission is to share our passion for horned melons with the world, by surrounding ourselves with positive people, strong relationships and using growing practices that Mother Nature would approve of. It is about being down to earth.

Where they are grown

We grow our kiwano horned melon’s in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty region, a lush and fertile environment also known as the ‘kiwifruit capital of the world’.

In this climate, there’s no need to add any harmful chemicals or insecticides to our fruit.

In fact, the minerals that blow across from the beach help give our kiwano horned melon its distinctive flavour and longevity.

Our close proximity to the Port of Tauranga and top-secret storehouse packaging process, using advanced technology means our horned melons reach you fresher and stay fresher for longer.

Meet the people behind the kiwano horned melon

Kiwano horned melons have been in the family since ’85. It was love at first slice…

As genuine kiwano horned melon lovers, we are passionate about the purity from a beautiful, naturally grown fruit – the flavour and quality that only comes from a careful handling process, like ours.

As for our happy team, they come from some of the most exotic places on earth, which makes every day at Enzed Exotics as fun, fresh and colourful as the fruit we grow.

Health benefits

Are kiwano horned melons super healthy? You bet!

Health specialists and nutritionists often call attention to the importance of including adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals in our daily diet. Zinc, calcium and magnesium are three of the most important minerals essential for good health and just happen to be found in kiwano horned melons. Magnesium aids in the absorption of calcium by the body while zinc actively supports the body’s immune system.

As filling as watermelon, but with less sugar and low in calories and fat, it’s no surprise kiwano horned melons have been touted as a miracle fruit.
Our kiwano horned melon is also a good source of Beta-carotene and Vitamin A. We need Vitamin A for healthy skin and mucus membranes, our immune system and good eye health and vision. No wonder they say the kiwano horned melon keeps you young.

Plus, since our naturally grown fruit is free from any harmful chemicals, you only get the good stuff.

How to use a kiwano horned melon

Make smoothies, juices, cocktails, sauces, salsas, raita, salads (and bowls to put salads in) – or squeeze it over your favourite vanilla ice cream. Yum. Plus, you can eat it raw because it’s all natural. And it’s from New Zealand – the most naturally beautiful country of all.

That’s where Alan and Vanessa from Enzed Exotics grow these ‘beauties’ – right opposite the beach – where minerals blown across from the ocean give these kiwano horned melons their unique flavour. The rest is up to you.
