Watson Greene Maximowiczia sonorae S. Ibervillea sonorae is a spectacular perennial desert plant relative of the cucumber with climbing vine and a large caudex, it produces yellow flowers in summer and little bright miniature red-orange melons in autumn.

In Sonora it is common from Navajoa to Alamos. The plants are very slow growing, so don’t expect great growth spurts from year to year.

In the dry season if you see this plant in the desert, you see only a dried chunk of loose wood often resembling a large cow dropping or weathered rock.

Fruits are eaten by lizards and other animals. The fruit becomes red as it ripens. It will start growing again in Spring. It’s also possible to make cuttings. Iberviolea plant is suited to greenhouse culture, but does well out of doors in Mediterranean climate, it responds well to cultivation and can eventually make a wonderfully unusual houseplant.

Male flowers staminate about 15 mm long, yellow, glabrous in racemes, tubular, to 8 mm long, hypanthium narrowly cylindric. Remove the spent branches.
