(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? Looks, taste, high yield

What are the cons? Invasive but tolerable

Review:

I tried these just as an experiment and I am glad I did. They are slow starters. After transplanting, they did nothing for a few weeks until the weather really warmed up, then they took off! I found it helpful to grow them like pole beans, with plenty of garden twine for them to climb up. They produce MANY side shoots which will invade neighboring plants if you don't direct the growing tips back to where you want them. Very good producers and the taste is just what I expected. Crisp cucumber with a hint of lemon. Great in salads. I will try to pickle some at the end of the season.

What are the pros? Grows abundant vegatables

Review:

These are amazing and very flavorful awesome just to pick off the plant and eat or put in salads. They grow fast and put off a multitude of fruit. Just give it plenty of water and sunlight. Very decorative hanging plant on my deck

What are the pros? Super cute, high yields

What are the cons? A little hard to get started

Review:

These are absolutely amazing. They were a little tough to get started, but once I got them to about 3 inches and into my raised bed, 2 out of the 3 plants I had 10 inches apart from each other, really blew up. The third plant was about a week and a half behind those, but it ended up prospering as well. Be careful with these though, they can grow several inches a day and have completely grown into and around my small fence in the raised garden, and into my tomatoe plants 3 feet away. I think they have spread over 6 feet wide and 6 feet tall, and are now tangling into themselves. I highly recommend a lattice that you can see from both sides. The tiny little cukes tend to hide behind the extremely cute Ivy like leaves. I have found they are best picked at the size of an oval dime or so, and they have a bright cucumber flavor. I'm obsessed with this plant, and I'm going to make a separate raised trough for the next year so I can plant at least 5-7 plants.

What are the pros? Delicious, heavy producing

What are the cons? Slow to start

Review:

These were so much fun to grow! They took a long time to get past about 5-6 inches but once they did we were overrun and couldn't give them away fast enough. Great for snacking, like little lemon-y cucumbers
