A large fruiting selection of cassabanana. The fruit has a delicious, melon-like taste when it is ripe, which needs high temperatures to ripen. The sweet, aromatic, yellow-to-orange flesh of the mature fruit is eaten raw or made into preserves, pulp makes a refreshing drink. The immature fruit can be cooked as a vegetable. The fast-growing, fleshy vine can reach 15 m or more in height, climbing with four-part adhesive tendrils The large, hairy, lobed leaves grow to 30 cm in width. It needs good drainage to grow well, and does well on an acidic mix of sand or perlite and rich compost. Caution - Seeds are poisonous.

This plant is awesome!! I got two from Daleys and one makes ORANGE fruit (like the photo) and the other makes PURPLE fruit. Wow. It grows really well in the summer conditions here on the Sunshine Coast of QLD. Definitely needs a trellis to climb
