Pepino

  • Botanical Name: Solanum muricatum

An easy to grow melon-like fruiting bush from South America. The fruit has a unique cream colour and violet stripes with flesh that is firm and sweet similar to a rockmelon but not as musky. The bushy upright perennial plant is self fertile and cold tolerant - cut back after the frosts and it will happily regrow. Tiny seeds.

Matures 150 days from Transplant.
