I got this fruit from plant nursery and told that this is "Australia apple"...can't find it in google image. It is the size of kiwi fruit but taste like honey dew. 

Can anyone tell me what is the name of this fruit?

 This is the fruit inside but not ripe enough.

There is a member of the squash family called an apple gourd, that in australia grows wild on odd patches of ground like central reservations.

Most of the gourd family are bitter though. The cucamelon is about the same size as that.

Good spot! We've had the plants and green unripe fruit on the forum but this is the first(almost) ripe one.

Now I want to grow one myself. Actually, I want to eat one.
