(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”.

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.

What are the pros? Crisp, crunchy, cucumber taste

What are the cons? No huge yields so far

Review:

I've have great luck getting these cuties to germinate and grow into vigorous bushes. Not such good luck with the legendary big yields other people get. Could be my garden location and the fact I have to plant in pots. Anyhow, these little guys are great for noshing on in the garden, a great pick-and-eat choice. Those also pickle nicely.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? so tiny

Review:

Easy to grow, tasty, and found them to be fairly resistant to the powdery mildew in my area when other cukes were failing right next to them. Need to plant a decent amount for a reasonable harvest though they are so small they could be intercropped with tomatoes.

What are the pros? Unique garnish item

What are the cons? No flavor burst

Review:

Pretty, delicate vines grew trouble-free on fence. Would look nice on patio. Added tomato cages in front of my fence for more area. Slow to start then covered all. No issue with powdery mildew that neighboring cukes had. The "tiny watermelons" add salad interest. Mild cuke flavor, not sour to us, maybe has to do with soil. Consider slicing lengthwise as requires more bite than cherry tomatoes, for example. That might be a help for pickling which will be next year's experiment. Pick younger, as older pickings are entirely too tough. Good find, will grow again. Four stars because in my opinion this is more of a side-interest item, not center stage.

What are the pros? Easy to start, prolific, tasty

What are the cons? 90 days to start harvesting

Review:

I started the seeds mid July with some corn and got a pint jar harvest the second week of October. They love climbing the dying corn stalks and as of the middle of Oct. I got a second pint and a half harvest with tons more on the way. Next spring I'll start these with some proper support to make harvesting easier! Can't wait!
