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.”

Response

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?”
