Looking for a unique addition to your desert garden? Look no further than Cucurbita palmata, also known as coyote melon or coyote gourd. This native squash species thrives in the southwestern United States and far northern Mexico, where it sprawls and climbs with rough, stiff-haired stems and sharply palmate leaves. The plant's distinct, brightly colored fruits range in color from bright yellow to dark green, often with white stripes. But don't be fooled by their attractive appearance - these fruits are distasteful and not meant for consumption. Add a touch of wild beauty to your arid landscape with Cucurbita palmata.
