Marks & Spencer has launched a new hybrid fruit called the Limelon.
The upmarket retailer announced the new fruit on a post on Instagram.
Sharing an image of the delicacy, the store revealed what it tastes like.
‘Introducing the limelon’
The post said: “Introducing the LIMELON! This incredible limited-edition hybrid fruit tastes like a juicy melon with a hint of lime – deliciously refreshing with a zesty citrus bite.
“Perfect for all the family, this zingy fruit is great served on its own, topped on yogurt or added to savory lunchtime salads.”
The post was popular – garnering thousands of likes and hundreds of comments.
Many commentators were enthusiastic, with one writing: “Oh wow I love this! How is it made? I don’t care, I want one!!”
Another added: “These are absolutely delicious. Hopefully pick up another one today.”
While the feedback was largely positive, one seemed unhappy about the hybrid, simply writing: “Why do they have to muck about with everything?”
