This member of the Cucurbitaceae family was described by Philipp William Albrecht Zimmermann in 1922, and is found in Kenya. It prefers a well-drained soil, plenty of water in growth and some sun. The caudex will grow to about 12" in diameter, the vines can reach 22 inches. The flowers are yellow, and it can only be reproduced from seeds. Dioecious (but seen monoecious in cultivation), female flowers might only occur on older plants. The fruits are orange, and look a little like a fat chili.
