I have the same problem. To me it seems like a virus, or could possibly be a fungus. I'm just going to wait it out, I think. Already there are some healthier shoots coming through, about a month after the new growth started curling.

I think people underestimate the ability of plants to overcome or live with infections. I put in some paw paws in February that got some sort of virus (possibly mosaic virus). They got very close to death with only a few horribly disfigured leaves left, but I just left them and eventually they came good and are now covered in fruit and taller than me.

Pepino melons are susceptible to red mites. A leaf spray under the leaves will be necessary.
Hope this helps.
