The Seed Savers Exchange - Also known as Kiwano or African Horned Cucumber, although botanically, this thorny oval fruit, filled with lots of seeds and greenish-gold gel, is not a true cucumber. Its fruits have a flavor reminiscent of pomegranate and citrus and are high in vitamin C. Jelly Melon originated in semi-arid Africa near the Kalahari Desert and is often used as a garnish or decorative fruit. 120 days. ±1,400 seeds/oz.
This variety will grow well in most regions of the United States but does not tolerate cold well.
Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors in 12" diameter hills after the last frost when soil is warm. Space hills 6' apart in all directions. Can also be started indoors 2-4 weeks before the last frost for an earlier harvest. Provide support for vines to save space.
