Gac Fruit Vine (nomordica cochinchinensis)

70X the Lycopene of tomatoes and 10X the beta-carotene of carrots, Gac is a fast growing tropical vine that is highly drought tolerant perennial cold hardy to about 15F. Large bright red, cantaloupe sized fruit covered in short spines hangs from the exotic green vine following the pollination of the unique creamy yellow flowers after the second year of growth. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins this is a rare plant that every edible landscape should include.
