For perennial use, in late autumn once the fruiting period is over, lift the cucamelon's main radish like root and store in barely moist compost in a garage or shed over winter. Plant out again in early April to achieve early fruiting.
A close relative, M. pendulum, is said to be purgative when fully ripe.
