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

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.

5 of 5 Five stars will grow again! December 17, 2018
Reviewer: Elizabeth from Buffalo, NY United States  
I seeded them directly into my container garden.
They took a little while to germinate, but when they did they grew vigorously!  I believe I got 100% germination.  The cukes were adorable, grape-sized and slightly sour.  I made lots of pickles!
