(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”.

Review:

Seeds sprouted in 7 days. Grows incredibly fast. Gives fruit in no time. One of my new favorite plants. My plant is only 3 and a half months old, and it gave off over a hundred cucumbers. I'm so happy

What are the pros? Easy, I mean easy easy

What are the cons? slow to grow

Review:

Well, they direct seeded very easy and grew pretty consistently. I had a couple here and there in July but there really didn't come on til end of Aug/early Sept and I still only got an ice cream bowl full. I'm going to save the seed and try doing more than 1 in a hanging basket. I would recommend a basket, they really seemed to like trailing up and down and it really looked nice and full all summer. I have it one my episode at https://www.itownz.com/gardengurl.php

What are the pros? Good Ornamental, Tasty

What are the cons? Susceptible to bugs

Review:

These were very slow to produce fruit - the plant produced a very beautiful, very large vine as it climbed all along the trellis. For a long time, I thought these would be a bust. Then one morning, months after seeds were first sown, the tiny yellow blossoms covered the plant. A few short days later, I had more small gherkins than I knew what to do with. They have a bright, unique flavor. A bit sweet; a bit tart. My kid absolutely LOVES snacking on them. They are great in salads too, both for the flavor and the appearance.

Review:

I grew these in Santa Cruz, CA. It is now August and I am getting these adorable little fruits. They are the size of a large grape and so pretty. I can't wait to put them in a salad. They taste really fresh and are nicely crispy. There is no bitterness. I am growing them in the ground under a young apple tree. They don't get much water. The plant I have overwintered from last year. I wonder if it's perennial. It has teeny, tiny, elfin tendrils that look like they want to climb on something. I might try a small tomato cage. These look exactly like tiny watermelons so maybe they would be cute in one of those little fairy gardens.

Review:

We were introduced to these 2 years ago by a coworker. We fell in love with their crispy refreshing taste and decided to grow our own. We tried to grow them last year and nothing germinated. Disappointed, but not beaten, we tried again this year, starting the seed in pots. We lost several plants, due to various problems, but, had enough left to get in the ground when it was time. It took them quite awhile to get going, but, once they took, they ran! We just had our first couple fruit yesterday and a few more today. The vines are about 5-6ft long and loaded with flowers and immature fruit.....it's looking like the work and patience is going to pay off! Next time I think I will give them a taller trellis to grow on, as they have escaped their current setup...
