Organic Mexican Gherkin Cucumber HEIRLOOM These adorable tiny cukes are also called 'Mouse Melons' and indeed their delicious 1 inch fruits look exactly like miniature watermelons! Their 4' vines abound with super crunchy fruits that sport a slight tang that grows stronger as they age. Children love to harvest and eat these marvelous fruits and their tiny, ornate leaves make harvesting easy for everyone. Mexican Gherkins are resistant to traditional cucumber diseases (especially Powdery and Downy Mildews) so we often enjoy our first planting all the way to frost.

75 days to maturity

Melothria scabra

Mexican Sour Gherkin May 20, 2016
Reviewer: Brian Creelman from southern Quebec zone 4b  
Super-fun to grow! The ideal kid's veggie - they are slow to start and somewhat anemic at first, but when they get going - look out! Gazillions of fruit like to hide in the foliage. Best grown on a trellis. A nice, zingy counterpoint in a cherry tomato salad or try 'em pickled. Tricky to save seeds.
