The fruit is large, up to 60 cm long, with skin of variable color. 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.

I purchased mine last year, it is huge and was covered in male flowers for some time. It has now started producing female flowers going into winter. Im hoping that they make it through till spring. Possums seem happy eating the leaves.

I got one at Daleys in April and it has grown wonderfully through the winter and now if totally covered in fruits! VERY excited for these to ripen!! The vine is extremely vigorous and seems to love the climate.
