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

5 of 5 Market favorite March 5, 2020
Reviewer: Mark Tashjian from Burnt Hills, NY United States  
The vines grew 8 ft. tall, producing an abundance of  cucumbers that look like little watermelons. A conversation starter for sure. Although they are good for fresh eating, most of mine get pickled.

5 of 5 Lovely little guy! January 21, 2020
Reviewer: Marybeth James-O'Connor from Brunswick, ME United States  
This was a lovely plant to grow. So unusual and bountiful. It kept producing right up until the first hard frost. I love the shoe, color, and vine of this plant. Very delicate in its appearance. The cucumber itself was a delightful bitter crunch!

4 of 5 Sweet little treat February 12, 2019
Reviewer: Paul Johnson from Plympton, MA United States  
I tried to start these indoors with no success. A late season direct sow produced great results. If I had planted them sooner my yield would have been much better.

I used small tomato cages for the vines with great success.
Do not plant them too close together.
