Winter melon beginnings

The original winter melon plant: Just 40cm high and starting to flower again.

Well, it looks like my first winter melon plant has found its second wind. After producing the Little Monster, about 70% of the vine died out, making me worry that it would not be able to catch its breath and continue growing. The leaves have been small, compared to what the vine used to grow, but with each new one, they have been getting a little bigger.

The plant has finally started producing male flowers again, so I am heartened that we could see more fruits growing here sometime soon.

The new winter melon sprout grown from seeds from the original plant.

Generation Two has also started growing. One seed I saved from the harvested fruit has germinated and kept on growing so far. Maybe more will join it! 8)
