A tropical American vine having large leaves, large pink-purple flowers, and large fruits, it is a favorite in the Caribbean. The fruit is 6-12" long, has three grooves and the thick rind can be eaten as well as the pulp. The melon-like rind is rather tasteless unless it is mixed with the pulp or other fruits for flavoring. The fruit color is greenish yellow. The flavor is an acid sweet. Propagated by seed or cutting.
