Bogobe jwa lerotse is the national dish of Botswana, characterized by a delicate flavour imparted by the lerotse melon, a type of fruit that is visually reminiscent of a typical watermelon and distinguished by its orange-coloured flesh. Lerotse has a neutral flavour when raw, but it imparts a unique flavour to the dish when cooked. The dish is typically stirred with a traditional wooden whisk, called lehetho, and has a porridge-like consistency when fully cooked.
