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.

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 pepper plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are well established and 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.
