Pepinos are a fast growing, low-lying, bushy member of the Solanum family. Best with something to lean on or climb up - banana palm, fence, babaco etc (getting the fruit off the ground stops the slaters getting them). A delicious mild flavoured melon type fruit ripening in early spring when there Is not much else and continuing through the summer. A good one for children, because they are easy to grow and fruit quickly. They also make tasty dried fruit.
