    In the many seed/plant catalogs I get, I noticed a couple have what is called "Vine Peach" or "Mango Melon".

    Seems like an easy grow vine, very productive plant, that would be perfect for letting grow up around one of the chainlink fences we have at the farm. And I was thinking of spacing some tire planters for the job :thumbsup:

    Any ever hear of this plant? Sorry, they do not give the proper names for it.

    Thank you.

    I did a search on Vine Peach and turned up the information that it is an "heirloom" fruit, annual, best grown on a trellis, and used for jams and jellies. Never heard of it before, but it does sound intriguing! Of course, if it's green and has leaves, it intrigues me.
    If you grow it, let us know how you like it.
