Tons of tiny little cucumbers that look like mini-watermelons but taste like a pleasantly sour cucumber…
65 days. Open pollinated. Heirloom. An unusual little fruit that you will not be able to stop snacking on. But, save them for pickling and salads, too. Rampant but delicate vines get loaded with 1″ green and white melons that are crunchy and have a slightly sour taste like they have already been pickled. Very refreshing, and perfect in salads, salsas, stir fries, and pickles. An ancient food from Mexico and Central America, where they have been used extensively since pre-Columbus times. Not a cucumber or melon botanically, so won’t cross pollinate with either. Makes a lovely ground cover, but is best trellised for ease of harvesting. Kids love these.

Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.
Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.
Our plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots. They are ready to be planted out in your garden.
We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.
