(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? seed life, flavor, novelty

What are the cons? germination learning curve

Review:

--The first year I tried to grow some and had poor luck with them. --Second Try: I tried starting them in trays later (end of May) and I got decent germination and managed to grow a couple large pots worth to show off at farmers markets to see if there would be an interest in them. They were VERY well received and both adults and children LOVED them. I found they did best in containers. Hanging baskets are easy to grow and harvest...but you MUST maintain even moisture in a container. I suggest something at least 12" diameter. The flavor is lemony tart and crisp, then changes to sweeter-seedier-softer. I thought it was good at all stages. -- Year 3 growing: It is May 19, 2014 and I put seeds in my germination tent a little over 7 days ago. They just broke ground last night. The tent is close to 80 degrees all the time, lights are 5" above the tray & I put a heat mat under the cell tray. Germination on 4 year old seed is excellent!! WARM AIR, WARM SOIL, EVEN WATER!!! That is the trick

What are the pros? beautiful vines, prolific,

What are the cons? delicate vines at start

Review:

This was the best container vine. Grew in 15 gal pot with thin wire tomato trellis. Taste is sweet/sour very crunchy and juicy. Vines were beautiful. These make the Best bread and butter pickles! Also good split in salads. Fun plant to show off.

What are the pros? Easy 2 grow, quick, huge yield

What are the cons? None

Review:

These were a cute and fun addition to our garden. We didn't do much maintenance on them at all, in fact, they are growing in a huge patch of tall grass right now (October '13). My two year old adores them because they are almost like little sour candies.

What are the pros? super delish

What are the cons? young vines are VERY sensitive

Review:

I bought these seeds planning to try my hand at pickling for the first time. The plants produce handful after handful of tiny tart and crunchy cucumbers. But i have yet to get enough at once to pickle... they seem to continuously disappear from the refrigerator.
