Cun de amor
My friend has a dog named "cun de amor" (phonetic pronunciation). I am not sure of the spelling of the first word. De amor means :of love". I need help in determining the proper spelling and meaning of the phrase she uses as the name of the dog.
'Cundeamor (cun de amor)' is the Spanish name for the fruit of a wild vine called 'Balsam Apple' in English. It's a small, spiny-looking fruit, like a mini horned melon. When it ripens, it bursts open and reveals its blood-red seeds. Birds go nuts for these, so if you've got parrots or parakeets in the house, do them a favor and bring them a couple.
Bitter melons, probably more well-known than balsam apples, are called 'cundeamor chino' (Chinese Balsam Apple). Bitter melons and balsam apples are in the same plant family, with the bitter melons being usually quite a bit larger and, well, bitter.
The name might be "Conde Amor" Conde is a title of nobility such as earl or count.
