Your achocha looks great! It's doing so much better than mine is, so far this year. Mine hasn't really got going.

I just got lucky this year; we really are going to eat it this time round!!!

Mine has only just emerged. It's made a slow start but it usually goes like the blazes once it gets into the soil. We still have a few in the freezer from last year, they've been so prolific.

Have you tried "Fat baby" achocha -Cyclanthera brachystachya? Similar flavour, less likely to be mistaken for marijuana by enthusiasts and law enforcement types alike - grows insanely vigorously, even outside in the UK. Good (just like C. pedata) for controlling blood sugar levels, apparently.
