Tastes like: Cucumber and lime. Gracing the dishes of many a TV chef, these tiny watermelon lookalikes have a refreshing flavour and bags of personality. Plus, their lush climbing/trailing vines will produce masses of fruit throughout the summer. Ideal for grow bags, pots, a greenhouse or in the ground. Harvest late July through to first frost. Ready when they are grape sized and still firm to the touch. Origin: Mexico. Latin Name: Melothria scabra.
Cucamelons can be used in just the same way as traditional cucumbers; in salads, pickled, whole, or why not explore their cocktail-enhancing prowess and give your Martini a delicious new twist!
