Pepino
Pepino

  • Price: $11.00

The pepino dulce is relatively hardy though it does grow better in a warm, relatively frost-free climate. The plant can survive a low temperature of -2.5°C (27 to 28°F) if the freeze is not prolonged, though it may drop many of its leaves. The species is a perennial, but its sensitivity to chilling, pests, and diseases force the growers to replant the crop every year.

Comments Warnings : If you like melons you will enjoy pepinos. A small shrub/vine with large fruit. It is related to tomatoes. It can grow free standing or on a trellis.
