Review:

So I own my own gardening business and received a plant from a lady I was talking gardening with. I don't do mainstream plants or hybrids unless specifically requested from clients. So mostly I find the rare, odd, interesting varieties to grow. Well I put this guy in a pot against the fence where the sprinkler would hit it, gave it an ample supply of compost and forgot about it. That is until I noticed it had creeped a few feet up the fence with dozens of blooms and lots of these little melon looking things. My favorite part is is seeds and sour notes. Best thing in the world was giving a couple to my brother who loved the sweetness of it for the second or two before he noted the sour and started making his funny faces. Needles to say. They hands down won a spot in the actual garden this year.

Review:

I loved watching these vines grow. They grew fast and once the fruit came on it was gangbusters. I picked & picked, they lasted long, weeks on the counter. They never made it to the fridge. Interesting the longer they stayed on the vine the sweeter they got, still retaining the tart flavor mixed with the sweet. They were at their best after they fell from the vine and of course easier to see & harvest. We had a hot summer last year. I didn't plant them this year, trying the Beit Alpha instead. Those grow great and I would plant those again. The tiny watermelon cucumber were really much too labor intensive. Not bad just time consuming, to look & pick up or pick. All in all I enjoyed them thou I wouldn't plant them again but I recommend trying them at least once. I think children would love to plant & pick & eat these. A fun experience.

Successful experiment

What are the pros? Looks, taste, high yield

What are the cons? Invasive but tolerable

Review:

I tried these just as an experiment and I am glad I did. They are slow starters. After transplanting, they did nothing for a few weeks until the weather really warmed up, then they took off! I found it helpful to grow them like pole beans, with plenty of garden twine for them to climb up. They produce MANY side shoots which will invade neighboring plants if you don't direct the growing tips back to where you want them. Very good producers and the taste is just what I expected. Crisp cucumber with a hint of lemon. Great in salads. I will try to pickle some at the end of the season.
