Monetary value of kiwano vine

I've been asked to advise someone whose large kiwano vine was mistakenly removed by landscapers. It was grown from a seed planted back in the winter or late spring, and at the time of its untimely demise, it covered a 2x3-foot pile of bricks. The owner wanted to photograph it but had not yet done so; also, it had not yet borne fruit.
The landscaper is willing to pay for it if a reasonable value can be determined.
This is in a temperate climate. Would a kiwano vine survive the first frost (which hasn't happened yet)?
