(Melothria scabra) 75 days. Incredible, small cucumber-like fruit are shaped like baby watermelons. They are good added to salads or can be pickled. They have a cucumber-like taste with a touch of lemon. The ornamental vines have tiny leaves and flowers and are perfect for the cottage garden. Very unique and fun for kids. Huge yields. Read about these in “Mother Earth News”.

What are the pros? Hundreds, fun to pick.

What are the cons? Too small for salads.

Review:

I loved watching these vines grow. They grew fast and once the fruit came on it was gangbusters. I picked & picked, they lasted long, weeks on the counter. They never made it to the fridge. Interesting the longer they stayed on the vine the sweeter they got, still retaining the tart flavor mixed with the sweet. They were at their best after they fell from the vine and of course easier to see & harvest. We had a hot summer last year. I didn't plant them this year, trying the Beit Alpha instead. Those grow great and I would plant those again. The tiny watermelon cucumber were really much too labor intensive. Not bad just time consuming, to look & pick up or pick. All in all I enjoyed them thou I wouldn't plant them again but I recommend trying them at least once. I think children would love to plant & pick & eat these. A fun experience.

What are the pros? Looks, taste, high yield

What are the cons? Invasive but tolerable

Review:

I tried these just as an experiment and I am glad I did. They are slow starters. After transplanting, they did nothing for a few weeks until the weather really warmed up, then they took off! I found it helpful to grow them like pole beans, with plenty of garden twine for them to climb up. They produce MANY side shoots which will invade neighboring plants if you don't direct the growing tips back to where you want them. Very good producers and the taste is just what I expected. Crisp cucumber with a hint of lemon. Great in salads. I will try to pickle some at the end of the season.

These are amazing and very flavorful awesome just to pick off the plant and eat or put in salads. They grow fast and put off a multitude of fruit. Just give it plenty of water and sunlight. Very decorative hanging plant on my deck
