What are the pros? Easy to grow, non bitter
What are the cons? Skin needs peeling
This "melon" is grown as a cucumber alternative. In my hot climate the flavor far surpasses cucumbers. They don't get bitter and the vines hold up to the heat. The fruits are fuzzy, fairly thick with a dark green skin. They like to climb and need the height for the long fruits. While you can let them grow longer I prefer to pick them at under a foot long. The skin can be a bit tough so you may want to peel them before eating. If you've grown the Armenian Cucumber/Melon this is very similar.
