(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? Easy to start, low maintenance

What are the cons? Wish they grew in clusters

Review:

First year for me complete success. Started in seed propagation box, then into my green house in spring once soil was warm transferred outside and let grow up a cattle fence. Just picked a gallon of these last night, getting about a gallon a week. These plants look very delicate and very small vines but are quite productive. Love the taste either off the vine, in salads or just straight from the fridge.

What are the pros? Adorable, and rather tasty

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've been growing cucamelons for about three years now, and I make sure to have a special structure for them to grow on in my garden every year. Very low-maintenance, and you can harvest them late into the summer.

What are the pros? very prolific

What are the cons? none

Review:

We love these little jewels! I've planted them in a large container next to our back ramp in partial shade. They are very prolific, easy to grow and tastes great! We made salads with these and the little pineapple tomatillos (sadly, they don't have the seeds this year). At least we did when we didn't pick them as an outside snack! Most every one of the seeds we planted germinated. We highly recommend them.

What are the pros? Nice bite sized cucumber

What are the cons? Vines grow long and fast.

Review:

Planted in a little raised bed on the front porch to grow up mesh. Plant grew over 10 feet halfway through season, Covered front porch and shaded house. Had a ton on the vine until a high wind came along and pelted the neighbor and his house. They came back real fast. Friends would always stop on the way to the steps and plucked a few off to eat. Wife and I would always snag a few going in and out of the house. Great snacking item fresh off the vine.

What are the pros? Pretty Climbing Plant

What are the cons? Invasive & fruit tastes awful

Review:

Wish I had known how invasive this plant and seedlings can be. The fruit tasted awful - like a lemon flavored cucumber with little flavor to it. As we tore the huge vines off the garden fencing, thousands of the small gerkins fell off. Am sure we will be fighting to control the take over of these all over and around the garden next year. The worst thing to plant ever. Shared some starts with friends and their just took over any other plants nearby. Should come with a warning on the seed packet.
