A cucurbit from a group called the "scarlet gourds," native to sub-Saharan Africa. A vining caudiciform that can be trained on a trellis. Caudex is elongated and can be lifted above the soil to show it off. 5" pot size. This is a rare vining caudiciform. The caudex reminds me of fockea edulis with the lumpy bumpiness.
