Fire Squash
Trichosanthes sp.

In the mountains of Xishuangbanna near the borders to Myanmar lives this peculiar Cucurbitaceae. Its fire red fruits are hanging down like Christmas ornaments from forest trees during winter.
In our garden, one seedling germinating from a seed in February covered our house within 2 months completely. The vine grows a strong liana and very weird flowers.


The unusual flowers of Trichosanthes.


A close-up of a flower.


Our overgrown garden house, completely covered with vines 2 months after germination of the Trichosanthes seed.


The fruits of Trichosanthes are fire red.

Check if we have seeds available.
