Other names:Tree melons, pear melons and melon pears.
Ready to harvest when they turn yellow and develop some purple stripes/markings. They taste exactly like a sweet melon when ripe- rockmelon or honeydew is what I would compare them to.
They grow to around 1m a small shrub similar to a tomato or eggplant.
Looks great in the veggie patch or in a nice glazed pot on a balcony or amongst herbs.
They fruit through February, March, April, May, and June. Mine are flowering now in May.
Plant in full sun or partial shade.
Can be grown from stem cutting
Like rich well-drained soil
Prune hard after flowering to keep it neat and promote further growth and keep moist in hot weather.
Plant Sizes: 50mm Tube stock
