Cucamelon is producing fruit. The plants grows very fast. There are about 8 fruit today. It tasted exactly like a cucumber, but my first experience so am not sure of maturity yet. It is growing on a concrete reinforcing wire about 4 by 8 feet.

I don't know about heat, it may be that light levels are more relevant, as they are with tomato growing, but night-time minimum temps have been ~ low 50s f. or just above 10C here until recently. Even now they are stuck on 14C 57f.
