Cucumis myriocarpus (Gooseberry Cucumber)

200 (300)cm, Gooseberry Cucumber is an annual trailing to climbing species from tropical Africa to South Africa. It produces small sulfur yellow flowers followed by ornamental, marble sized, round dark green fruits with lighter green stripes and slightly bristle hairs, and which turn bright yellow to yellowish orange at maturity. Fruits and the entire plant are toxic! Fruits are sometimes confused with other species, such as Citrullus colocynthis. And as a matter of fact, the English version of Wikipedia shows a fruit from Citrullus colocynthis wrongly labelled Cucumis myriocarpus. However, fruits from Cucumis myriocarpus are easily identified by their much smaller size, their bristle hairs and longitudinal stripes in an immature state. For any rich soil in a sunny spot at a minimum of some 20°C. VII-IX.
