(Melothra scabba) aka: Mouse Melon, Mexican Sour Gherkin. A contender for world’s cutest vegetable! Resembling tiny watermelon, these grape sized fruit taste a lot like cucumber with a tart citrus hint. Really good eaten out of hand, and they make unique pickles. An awesome conversation starter!
The vining plants love to climb, and can reach 8 feet if trellised, but they’re happy sprawling on the ground too. The fruit may be small but are produced in great abundance. Cucamelons love the heat, so give them full sun... similarly to cucumbers or melons. 25 seeds
