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, 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.
