Last week our local Lidl had a special offer of somewhat exotic plants and I couldn't resist  buying a Pepino plant image.

I know that they produce edible fruits , but  they are not hardy, so my plant will have to live in a large pot and come indoors during the winter.

Has anyone ever tried growing them and managed to get any fruits on them?

    The one I've got is not a cucumber, but a Solanum muricatumimage. It's a kind of fruit, and supposed to taste like a cross between a melon and a pear. I was simply wondering if anyone has ever grown any, and perhaps got fruits on them image.

    Thanks image. I only signed up a few days ago, so the forum is still a bit new, as far as the various sections go image. I'm sure I'll learn over time image.
