Hairy or Fuzzy Melon
Hairy melon has a bit more flavour than zucchini with a subtle, slightly sweet taste. The soft, fleshy interior absorbs the flavours of the other ingredients it is cooked with.
Before using a fuzzy melon, remove the hairy fibers. Because the skin is very thin, a vegetable peeler is not recommended; instead, carefully run a knife down the length of the vegetable to scrape off the hairs. You can also scrub the fuzzy melon to achieve the same effect. The skin does not have to be removed, but most often, it is taken off before cooking or eating raw.
If the fuzzy melon is going to be stuffed, remove the seeds with a spoon. Otherwise, removing the seeds is optional when the melon will be cut and added to recipes. It is often sliced or cut into chunks before cooking and can be braised, stir-fried, steamed, and stuffed, as well as added to soups and stews.
