This member of the Cucurbitaceae
family was given this
name by Edward Lee
Green in 1895. It is found in Sonora, Mexico
where it grows in well-drained grit, using quite some water in the growing-period.
Doesn't need much sun, keep the caudex in the shade. It can
grow to 60 centimetres in diameter, vines up to three meters. The
flower is yellow, the berries red, and it's possible to make cuttings.
It is dioecious.
