Tindora is a deciduous perennial vine with angularly heart-shaped leaves, white 5-lobed flowers and fruits that are 5 to 6 cm long and green but become red when overripe.
Tindora is a popular vegetable used to make curries. It is picked when dark green, before it starts to turn red. It is sometimes sliced into long pieces and pickled. It can also be used as a crunchier alternative to cucumber in salads.
Tindora does best in warm humid climates.
Rich organic soil is preferred.
Grows readily from seed or mature vine cuttings.
