(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:

I really love these little gherkins. I live in western MA and grew them in an earth box with a small trellis. They are very sour but really good. They won first place in a pickling cucumber contest and were a huge hit with everyone at the agricultural fair. You do need to grow quite a few plants if you plan on making pickles because they are very small and a trellis works perfect.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, HUGE yield

What are the cons? horrible taste!

Review:

I grew these after reading an article about how great they are. Super easy to grow, but I personally hated the taste (sort of watery yet bitter). I grew them in a raised bed, and other types of cukes in the same bed tasted great, so I don't think it was a soil problem. I literally couldn't give them away after friends and neighbors tasted one. But taste is such a personal thing, I say give it a shot! Maybe you'll love them, and you'll have tons to eat!
