   This member of the Cucurbitaceae family was described by Asa Gray in 1853. It is found in the Sonora Desert, from Arizona to Mexico and north of Southern America, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The crawling vines will reach for two and a half meters, the caudex can grow up to one meter in diameter. The flowers are yellow. Young plants don't flower, then they start with male flowers, and old plants have female flowers. The plant can be reproduced by seeds and maybe by root cuttings.
