Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: Not an unusual sight in this area of north-eastern Colombia where we were collecting in early 2016 in a mountainous area at 3260m, on our way to Soata near the Venezuelan border. Hence we were able to select from all the variations that confronted us. This collection was gathered from a strong growing tendril climber with broad tri-lobbed serrulate leaves, carrying long pendant flowers that opened a strong pink. With an internal purple ring at the base of the petals. The tube had a green purple tinted exterior and the fruit was large covered in soft down still green yet the yellow interior was ripe. There is a possibility that there is some hardiness from this provenance, but care should be taken. Grow in full sun in a well drained fertile soil.
