(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? 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.

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.
