Momordica cochinchinensis (Gac Fruit)

7 (15)m, Gac Fruit is a dioeceous vine within the cucumber family (Cucurbitaceae) from South Asia and makes white flowers followed by showy, pomelo-sized, ovoid, bright orange fruits containing large seeds covered with a dark red seed flesh. Fresh fruits show the highest levels of lycopene of all fruits (up to 70 times the amount of lycopene in tomatoes) and up to 10 times the amount of beta-carotene in carots. Traditionally unripe one to two week old fruits are cooked and added to various Asian rice dishes and Indian curries. For any humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. Plants need a climbing add. In winter keep dryer and at a minimum of some 15°C. Seeds are extremely scarce! They have the size of an 1 Euro coin! Germination in this species is extremely slow, seeds may rest in the soil for 12 months before they start to germinate. VI-VIII.
2 seeds per package.
