Byline: By RUKI SAYID, Consumer Editor

THIS exotic new fruit tastes like a cross between a cucumber and a melon - and is set to become summer's healthy eating craze.

The vitamin-rich South American pepinos, dubbed cucumelons, are new to UK stores but are being snapped up despite costing pounds 5. London's Selfridges said: "Our stock sold out on the first day, as did a second delivery. We have a waiting list of customers eager to try it."
