Melothria pendula (Creeping Cucumber)

8.00

This is a native, perennial cucumber relative that produces small, edible (when green) cukes in the summer to autumn months. Plants prefer very well drained sandy or stony soil and are often found in sandy woodlands, or rocky ledges and cliffs. The small creeping vine works its way into crevices where new tubers are formed at the tips of the vine. Yellow flowers appear June-September followed by the green edible fruits which mature black and inedible. Makes a good hanging basket plant or addition to a rock wall. Zone 6-9. VA ecotype.
