Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

You know those people who gives out so many zucchinis that the neighbors pretend not to be home when they see you coming? You're going to be the exact opposite

@emch Har! The fruit aren't edible, though. It's an ornamental, mainly grown for the flowers and as food for #GulfFritillary caterpillars.

Loads of fruit, but not the edible variety. The leaves, however, ensure that the #gulffritillarybutterfly will visit, as this is what its caterpillars love to eat. 6June2021

And if you are near Florida it's a #butterflyhostplant for zebra longwing butterflies 😉
