(Melothria scabra) 75 days. Incredible, small cucumber-like fruit is 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.

What are the pros? Took the Florida hear well

What are the cons? Skin not as soft as reg.cukes

Review:

Planted these Mar 10th directly in new garden area. Couldn't remember what type of cuke I planted to try new garden bed, new area we moved to. Once they started producingaproducing and I seen the " little watermelons" I remembered! Our early weeks of above normal temps in the 90's, didn't phase them . Regular cukes die here once the 80's are reached but not these. I did not trellis like I have other cukes in the past, which may have helped them stay cooler. I love the taste even when bigger but the skins are a little tougher than regular pickling cucumbers, so I peel and slice them. Nice to find a cuke that takes the Fl heat! It's mid June and they are growing strong, hundreds of blooms. Will grow again.

What are the pros? Beautiful delicate vine

What are the cons? None

Review:

This will be my third season, direct planting seed and growing on a cattle fence trellis. These delightful little gems make great snacks straight from the vine and tasty eye catching beverage garnishes. They are heavy producers even in Michigan!

These were very easy to start and grow. Seemed to take a bit for them to get going, but once they did, look out.

What are the pros? taste, # of fruit

What are the cons? fragile vines

Review:

First off, this is a vine. I wish I had known that the first time I planted, because that didn't work out as well. The second time I planted, I made sure to trellis. I'm glad I planted multiple plants because they are really fragile vines. The little cukes are positively delicious, as fast as they grow, they were eaten by my kids. I didn't meet a single person who didn't love them. I highly recommend planting MANY of these.
