Hi Fern, Most of my Pepinos are the El Camino cultivar and I'm not hugely familiar with other cultivars. They're not growing that well this year on account of the constant rain and low temperatures we seem to be experiencing in Wellington at the mo. I see incredible edible sell three cultivars (El Camino, Incredible Blush and Incredible Ruby). I trolled through the internet and found this link that talks of nine cultivars. See this link http://www.crfg.org/pubs/ff/pepino.html

hi tim, do you know of different cultivars of pepino? I've got a pepino gold growing, gee it's hardy and vigorous! It's survived being frazzled in 45degree heat, being flooded, being torn out by a wwoofer then shoved back in the ground... and it's sprung up again! :-) Now I just need to get some decent fruit from it...
