Niddler is a monkeybird (a spider monkey/parrot hybrid) who was a slave and then becomes close friends–and free–with the main character of the show, Prince Ren, after saving his life. He loves all the foods but his all-time favorite is a fruit called minga melon that often looked like a watermelon on the outside but sometimes looked like a light green bell pepper squash thing–but always green–and then orange to red-ish on the inside. Man, Niddler can put down some minga-melons.
Niddler: Find any minga-melons?
Ioz: Get lost, monkeybird, before I shave your feathers.
–"The Ghost Pirates", "The Pirates of Dark Water" S.1, Ep.15
Note: The recipe below is for small minga-like-melons good for several individual servings, but you can totally make a big minga melon for an awesome par-tay or something by hollowing out a small-medium watermelon and filling that with the sorbet below. You'll need to triple or dipple the recipe, of course.
