(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? 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.

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.

Review:

I tried growing these for the first time this year and they germinated within the first week in my outside container. They are doing well and sending out their grabbing vine to lock onto the trellis. I am surprised how fast they do lock onto the trellis, I laid the fine against the bar and I am being honest with you when I tell you I sat there and watched the vine curl around the trellis bar in a matter of a couple minutes. I thought that was one of the coolest things watching a plant move and grab onto something right before my eyes, I love them so far!
