CUCUMBER Mexican Sour Gherkin 3″ sqpt
A unique specialty cucumber.
Cute, 1″ long fruits look like miniature watermelons and taste like cucumbers with tangy citrus overtones. Vines start growing slowly but can get up to 10′ long. Can be eaten fresh or pickled. Fruits can be sold in half-pint or clamshell containers at markets that appreciate novelty. Also known as the Cucamelon and mouse melon. Not particularly high yielding. Trellising recommended. NOTE: We recommend harvesting these cucumbers promptly as they tend to get seedy if allowed to grow longer than 1″.
