Piper and Phoebe prepare and discuss Kiwano.

The Kiwano, also known as Horned Melon and many other names, is a vine in the cucumber and melon family originally native to Africa. In 2000, Piper Halliwell contracted a deadly disease known as Oroya Fever after being bitten by a sand fly hidden in a crate of Kiwano she "imported" from South America. After a near-death experience and surviving the ordeal, Piper had the fruit sent back to its source.[1]

Notes and Trivia

  • Piper mentioned they tasted great in Mai Tais.
  • Smuggling the Kiwano fruit was necessary only to the plot, as it is grown in California, where the series takes place.
