Caigua is a vine grown for its small fruit, used as a vegetable. The fruit, seeds, and leaves are all edible and can be eaten raw or lightly cooked.

Its growth rate is astounding in a tropical climate where it is capable of growing 40 feet in a season. From late July through to September it produces tiny cream coloured flowers followed by curious edible, smooth gherkin like fruit with a hooked end.

New research has just shown that the fruits contain substances that dramatically reduce cholesterol and promote weight loss. The plant also contains potent anti-oxidants.
