Cucurbitaceae Week: Cucumis melo subsp. melo Khakri from Rajasthan: This fruit popular in Rajasthan under the name Khakri was also seen by us in Pachmari, a cucumber like fruit but tasting more of a melon. I am not able to place with conclusion. Any information please. Could it be in any way related to Puna Kheera.
This looks like "Phoont" (local name) to me
Thanks ..., I hope you are right: young fruit like cucumber, mature like melon. This is what we had seen in Pachmarhi also. Botanically Cucumis momordica Roxb. now correctly known as Cucumis melo L. subsp. agrestis var. momordica (Roxb.) Cogn.
I think this further resolves identity as Cucumis melo L. subsp. agrestis var. momordica (Roxb.) Cogn.
 
Seeking ID of Khakri from Rajasthan-11032013GS1 :  Uploading a fruit known as Khakri, oblong in shape reaching up to 20 cm in length with smooth orange-yellow skin and almost same coloured flesh. Locally consumed in Rajasthan. Reminds both of cucumber and melon. We had seen similar fruit in Pacmarhi nearly 30 years back. Any idea about is ID.
C. melo susp. agrestris var. momordica

The fruit was bought from Kanpur-Agra highway. In local language it is known phoot.
If it's Phoot, it should be Cucumis melo subsp. agrestis var. momordica
