Great addition to your CSA or market stand. Tiny green striped fruit with a delicious and unique flavour. These cucamelons are productive and have great disease resistance. Perfect for snacking, pickling or adding to salads. Cucamelons should be started indoors similar to a melon and transplanted outdoors after last frost.
[67 days] Mexican Sour Gherkin, mouse melon or “Sandita”, this vining mini-melon has a unique taste and amazing versatility in the kitchen. The vines look like regular cucumber plants, but the fruit is something special—grape-size fruits that seriously look like mini-watermelons and taste mostly like a cucumber, but with watermelon and citrus overtones. Super crunchy and slightly tart, these little guys are great in stir fries, pickled, added in salsas and chutneys, or simply eaten raw.
Great as a greenhouse fruit or started indoors early and then set outside like a normal cucumber. Much easier to grow than standard cucumbers, cucamelons have no pests, are drought resistant, and happily grow outside as well as in the greenhouse.
