In Production - Out of Stock

Guajilote is mostly planted in gardens not as a fruit but as an ornamental plant. It is fairly hardy and does not get injured if the temperature falls to 00C for short durations. Though Guajilote is basically a tropical plant, it also grows easily in mild subtropical climates. It seems to prefer sunny locations also requiring irrigation at frequent intervals during the dry season. It is adapted to a wide range of climatic conditions but is most frequently found in high-rainfall forests where it grows spontaneously.

Comments Warnings : The fruits, which look like a greenish yellow cucumber, are edible. They have quite pleasant flavour reminiscent of sugar cane. Besides eaten fresh, they are also made into preserves cooked, roasted and pickled.
