I had planted my Choko Plant in end of 2016. Got a few melons in 2017 and quite a number of them in 2018. Of course it have flowers and melon only during warmer season. apparently there are a few new shoots are growing from the plant, so I would appreciate if someone can let me know how long does a choke plant can grow? Thanks and regards.

Choko is perennial plant, it will keep growing but to the very cold places mostly died. If you can protect it from frost it will come out again when weather is warm enough.
