Coccinia (South Africa Ornamental Gourd)

South Africa Ornamental Gourd makes fast growing annual to semiperennial climbing branches from a perennial rootstock. The small, lemon-yellow to golden flowers are followed by most decorative, egg-shaped to elongated fruits (not edible) which turn to a brilliant orange-red or scarlet with maturity. Due to their ornamental fruits all species make nice pot plants for any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. Keep the semi-dormant fleshy roots drier in winter at a minimum of some 12°C.
Sow flat in any well drained, humus-rich, preferably slightly sandy soil at some 20°C. Keep pots in full sun (winter) to partial shade (summer).
10 seeds per package.
