(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:

A friend of mine gave me three seeds from a baker creek pack. All three germinated and thrived,even through a light frost. We've been picking dozens every day. I am coming to buy more because I plan to plant many more next season.

What are the pros? Very cool looking, good taste,

What are the cons? Vine Borers LOVE them

Review:

These little guys don't look like much when they start growing but once they get their feet under them good they are off to the races. I had 2 plants that I set on a 3x3 raised bed with a 7 foot tall "Tee Pee" Trellis. Well they covered that in a few weeks and it was impossible to see into the middle of it so it has been hard to pick the fruits. Mine are setting tons of them ad I find the easiest way to harvest has been to shake the trellis and then reach in on the ground underneath and rake in all the fruits. They taste like watermelon close to the rind to me. I will grow again but on an arched trellis that I can access under easier.

What are the pros? Fast germination

What are the cons? Requires beneficial insect

Review:

I was wildly optimistic about this one after all that I had read. My plants grew well and the onset of fruit began when they were about 3 weeks old. No pests have bothered my plants. However, it is obvious that without bees or some other beneficial insect, pollination will not occur. What I assume to be the male flowers (I have yet to see one open) are in small clusters of what appears to be 5 to 6 extremely small little buds. I believe it would be impossible to pollinate by hand. My overall rating of one star is entirely specific to my location and lack of bees. I would recommend trying this to anyone with resident bee populations but would not recommend with conditions similar to mine.

What are the pros? Cute, prolific, popular

What are the cons? Taste is so-so

Review:

These are so unique and cute. Neighbors, friends, and family always wanted baggies of them, and for how much they produce that was no problem. The flavor was ok, although in fairness I probably left some of them on the vine too long. Can't help but think these would be fun pickled and put in cocktails. For those complaining of their invasive-ness,we bought some cattle panels and trellised them up that. They loved it and never tried to go anywhere else, plus it was cheap, easy, attractive and allowed for easy access to pick the cucumbers. Have pasted a how-to link on the cattle panel trellis below. http://www.frugalfamilyhome.com/home/gardening/diy-bean-pea-cucumber-trellis

The cutest edible I've ever grown and tasty! I bought more seeds, but am hoping that the tubers from last year's plants will come back.
