(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? cute, tasty

What are the cons? slow

Review:

I planted these last year in trellis pots and had no germination at all. This year I planted from the same seed packet in raised beds with better soil and they've been growing ok and producing a few fruits, but I think this heat wave may be stressing them, as I've seen very limited fruits that aren't plumping as expected. Largest one was about 3/4". They sure are tasty, though. Will keep trying.

What are the pros? Fruits until our hard frost

What are the cons? Nothing!

Review:

I direct sow these halfway through May. They take a little while to sprout, but once they start growing, they're awesome! I trellis them and they climb, flower and fruit all summer long and into autumn. I had no problems with pests or disease. They don't stop fruiting until the hard frost kills them. If you let them get too big they're a bit seedy and tough skinned, so pick them once they're thumbnail sized. They taste like a lemony tart cucumber and are cute as well :)

Review:

Plants on April5 in a greenhouse. Temperatures warm. May 14, and all I have is 1/4 inch sprouts. Am I overwatering? What can be wrong? Bad batch of seeds?

Review:

Love these little guys. Great producers. Great tasting. Easy to care for. Will purchase and grow again. Just one question. The vines died off but the fernlike plants remained over the fall and winter. They are now flourishing in this spring and white cotton ball looking flowers are emerging. No vines or fruit production. Will these come back or do I need to start over. The fernlike plants are over a foot tall.

Review:

These are one of my favourite 'in garden' snacks that never make it into the house! They taste like a cucumber with a twist of lime, are best when they're around the size of a table grape, and while they do take a little longer than you'd expect to produce, once they do, there's Tons!
