Mouse Melon - Mexican Sour Gherkin
Mouse Melon is a tiny cucumber that looks like like a doll-sized watermelon. This long-lost heirloom was grown by the Incas and has only recently been rediscovered. It's easy to grow, highly productive, and great fun to eat.
Mouse Melons have a sweet cucumber flavor with a tangy, citrus twist. They make crunchy snacks, add color and zip to salads, are great for pickling. Kids love them.
The pretty vines have tiny leaves and flowers, charming in a flower garden or trail from a hanging basket. They produce generous yields. If you grow for Farmers Markets, this is a sure hit.
