Mexican Sour Gherkin

Mexican Sour Gherkin (Melothria scabra)

 

"Newly rediscovered heirloom. Produces abundant crops of 1-2" fruits that have the appearance of miniature watermelons, and fall off the vines when ripe. Sweet cucumber flavor, contrasted by a surprising sourness, as if they are already pickled! Great for growing on a trellis. 60-70 days."
