The meiloorun fruit, also known as meiloorun melon or simply meiloorun, was a type of orange fruit. It was known to not grow on Lothal, making it quite rare on the planet. The fruit was known to be the favorite snack of rebel pilot Hera Syndulla.[1] The clone trooper "Big-Mouth" was known to find meilooruns to eat no matter where his unit was stationed.[2]

A large quantity of these fruits were once in the possession of an Imperial unit on Lothal before they were lost due to the actions of two of the Spectres, Ezra Bridger and Garazeb Orrelios.[1]

During an attack on Imperial Troop Transports and after the Siege of Lothal, Zeb used the alias "Commander Meiloorun" for various purposes. He again used the name as a disguise to help his team escape from Inquisitors.[1]

While meilooruns naturally had an orange and yellow rind, there existed a hybrid variant that had a purple rind instead.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Meilooruns originate from X-Wing: Wedge's Gamble, a Star Wars Legends novel written by Michael A. Stackpole and released in 1996. "Meiloorun Juice" is sold at Star Wars Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland.
