A slender plant and the stem by Marco Hijuelos
   This member of the Cucurbitaceae family was given this name by Charles Jeffrey in 1978. It is found in south-eastern Mexico and Belize, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to a lot of sun. The caudex can grow to twelve centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to three metres in height. The flowers are yellow, the fruits 5-7 centimetres and light yellow-orange. It will form roots if the vines touch moist soil.
