Mexican Sour Gherkin, Mouse Melon, Cucamelon Heirloom Garden Seed Non-GMO Open Pollinated Gardening
Mexican Sour Gherkin. Mouse Melon, Cucamelon Heirloom Garden Seed
Mouse Melon is a newly rediscovered heirloom grown by the Incas. Produces abundant crops of 1-2" teeny crunchy fruits that look like tiny doll-sized rattlesnake watermelons. This rare relative of the cucumber has a distinctive tangy, citrus crunch followed by a lingering sweet cucumber flavor with a twist like they are already pickled. The plant is slow to start and once they get going, though, the beautiful lacey vines reach a length of 6-8 feet and are highly productive until frost. (These will not germinate in cold/damp conditions, use a heated mat or somewhere very warm 70-80 F )Great for growing on a trellis, or in a hanging basket. Kids love to eat them right off the vine. 60-70 days.
