A shrubby fruit plant grown for its sweet edible soft and fleshy fruit or just as an ornamental plant for its foliage! They’re ideal for growing in a container in the greenhouse or a sunny conservatory. It has also become quite a popular vegetable in salads or stews. The multi-coloured flowers appear in summer and the fruits follow a few months later. You will be rewarded with plenty of tasty edible pepino dulce fruit, that resemble a melon in colour and its flavour is a succulent mixture of honeydew and cucumber, it's sometimes called pepino melon or melon pear. It's supplied in a 7 cm pot.

How to take care of Solanum muricatum Pepino Melon

Treat much like tomato plants. Grow in full sun, water regularly. Use well-drained soil. Nor hardy so must be care over winter in greenhouse or conservatory. Feed the plants as follows: give an organic based fertilizer, such as dried manure on the top soil one week after planting and allow it to gradually soak into the ground, then every two weeks a liquid fertilizer such as Phostrogen as a foliar feed. Melons need plenty of water, feeding and sun. It will not tolerate shade.
