Solanum muricatum. Pepino Dulce is a somewhat hardy tomato relative. The name pepino dulce means sweet cucumber in english and the flavor of the fruit is somewhat like a sweet melon when ripe. The plant is prized for its medium sized fruit and sprawling nature to be used as edible ground cover in a food forest. Pepino Dulce is easy to root by cuttings and orginates from the Andes and so it can handle cooler temperatures and is hardy down to 28 degrees. USDA Hardiness Zone 8-11, but 9-11 is a safer bet as a freeze can knock it back and/or kill it.
