Mederi is a licensed CA nursery and sells plants privately at a Pacific Grove residence by appointment or at the Alvarado St. Old Town Monterey Farmer’s Market on Tuesday afternoons.
Pepino Dulce (Solanum muricatum) is a favorite of ours and they are thriving at the nursery!
We offer small, medium and large sized Pepino Dulce plants for sale:
Small P. dulce … $10
1 gallon P. dulce … $20
5 gallon P. dulce … $50
This plant is delicious! The fruits taste like a mix between honeydew and cucumber, thus the name “Pepino dulce” translated means, “sweet cucumber”
Although these plants are native to Northern South America, and sometimes referred to as a ‘South American Tree Melon,” they grow amazingly well in the foggy coastal microclimates of coastal California.
S. muricatum is an edible evergreen shrub that thrives in a diverse range of climates and soils, making it a great selection for a permaculture garden.
