Bryonia (Canary & Mediterranean Wild Melon)

Bryonia or Wild Melon make annual climbing branches from a perennial rootstock. Some species have quite large, lemon-yellow flowers followed by most decorative, completely round, either green fruits with light green vertical stripes, ripening to bright orange or pure green fruits turning orange-red with age. Fruits of all species are poisenous (!), but their aromatic smelling sap has some astringent properties. They are native of the succulent zone of the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean region, where they climb up shrubs or spread on the ground. Good pot plants for any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Keep dormant plants completely dry in summer. In winter keep at a minimum of some 10°C in a sunny place.
Sow in any well drained soil at some 20°C in a sunny spot. Keep seedlings warmer in their first year.
10 seeds per package.
