What are the pros? Taste, Size
What are the cons? Germination
I kept seeing these on Instagram and decided I wanted to try to grow these tiny watermelon looking cucumber things. I had great success with germinating them in one of those little plastic Jiffy greenhouses, although they took a bit longer than I expected. They transplanted well, and had the tiniest leaves. The leaves were so tiny that I couldn't imagine how they would possibly grow and thrive, but after a short while, they began to climb. And once they did, they spread all over the place! I was shocked how good they were at climbing. I had them trained up some nylon trellis netting, and they overtook that and climbed on the roof of my porch. I only have three plants, but the vines are covering an area at least 4 feet wide and 7 feet tall. The fruits are such a lovely little treat each time I go out in the garden. I love finding all the little tiny fruits and popping them in my mouth for that cucumber taste with the slightly sour chaser. I will grow these again and again.
