about pepino

I have a pepino.
It's a very big, busy plant, takes up a lot of space in the garden.
Can I prune it and grow it single stem, like a tomato?
If I grow it with single stem, where will the fruits grow?

Re: about pepino

I never heard of pepino before but when I looked it up I found that it can be pruned and staked pretty much like a tomato plant.

Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Re: about pepino

I am growing Pepino Melons this year too, and I am wondering, how did yours go? Did you get the fruit? Any tips? How much I understand it can be pruned like tomato. But it is perennial. I think tomatoes in my climate are perennial too, but fungus finishes them usually by the end of winter.
