Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the damage.

This fruit is not, easily, grown. They are very particular, and do not enjoy any dry weather. High humidity will be one of the most important things to keep in mind about this plant. Temperatures must remain moderate. The vines are best grown on a trellis to avoid rotting in humid conditions, as well.

This paper from the Purdue Horticultural Extension will give you more information on the plant:
