    I remember when I was a child living in Peru……people would state that the Pepino Fruit was very good for your health……someone in Peru had tested it and assured the benefits it offered.
    I have not seen this fruit in any of the supermarkets in South Florida..would be great if you can find out and let us know.

    I am Monica from Kenya. Thank you for your insight regarding the Pepino fruit. It is gaining popularity in Kenya. Just heard about it about two months ago. I am using it with good results. About how many fruits should one eat in a day? When is it best to eat it for best results? I am very thankful to God for this gift to us.
    Thank you Dr Haider

    My name is Duppie. We grow Pepino melons with great results in Northern Namibia in the Okavango region. The plants grow easily in hothouses and bears very well. Large fruit also.
    We are the only people in Namibia growing them commercially and are inundated with enquiries about the medicinal properties of the fruit. Thnx for your input.

  20. The fruit can do anywhere in kenya especially in containers. One plant can produce more than 20 fruits at a go. It’s really wonderful.
