    Cucamelon - Are single plants productive?

    @Selleri What happened with the Agretti last year, out of curiosity? They did not grow well? Or did they turn up not as tasty as hoped?

    Curling tomato plant

    Tomatoes do this when they start to really grow fast, it looks bad but is a good sign. Usually it's the top leaves first thing and they unfurl during the day.
