A member of the squash family commonly knw as coyote gourd or melon. The coyote gourd is a perennial vine that grows each spring from an underground tuber. Large green leaves and huge yellow-orange trumpet flowers followed by a round shiny green, striped melon the size of a baseball. The melon turns yellow when mature and then dries to a tan with the vine dying back in late winter. Use as a ground cover or let grow on a trellis to provide shade during summer. Prefers soil that is loose, gravelly and well drained.
