"Wait. You did all this for fruit?"
"No. Okay, maybe a little."
―A stormtrooper and Ezra Bridger[1]

The meiloorun fruit, also known as meiloorun melon or simply meiloorun, was a type of orange fruit. The fruit did 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]

Meilooruns were also sold on Tatooine in the spaceport settlement of Mos Espa. During a chase between Mayor Mok Shaiz's majordomo and a street gang employed by Boba Fett, the majordomo crashed his landspeeder into a cart of meilooruns, which buried his landspeeder in the fruit and ended the chase.[3] After the Battle for Mos Espa, a small girl offered meilooruns to Boba Fett and Fennec Shand. Shand declined the offer, but Fett accepted the fruit and tossed it to Krrsantan, which he eagerly bit into.[4]

While meilooruns naturally had an orange and yellow rind, there existed a hybrid variant that had a purple rind instead.[5]

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.[6] Meiloorun juice is sold in the real-world Ronto Roasters in the themed land Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.[7]
