Annual vegetable.  This easy to grow vine because its long snake like fruit, requires high sturdy structure/arbour for plant to cling on.  Best growing in full sun location.  Unique white flowers with fraying petals which attract bees and butterflies a lot.   Very long fruit hang down and they do look like snakes.  🙂    Very exotic looking vegetable.  Taste good after cooking.  Mature size:10′-12′ (L) X 4′-6′(W).  Propagate by seeds.

蛇瓜(瓜葉栝樓)是一年生的爬藤,果實為數呎長的長條形,如長蛇般的瓜.  這個植株需要結實的結構/棚架來攀爬. 最好栽種在全日照處.  白色的花瓣外圍是流蘇般的鬚邊.  花吸引蜂蝶.  長條般蛇狀的瓜料理過是很好吃的.  成熟株高10-12呎長,寬幅4-6呎.  繁殖以種子來進行.
