Mexican Sour Gherkin Cucumber

25 Seeds

$ 3.99

(Melothria scabra) Native to Mexico, this vigorous, vining plant produces abundant yields of 1-2", oval-shaped fruit that resemble miniature watermelons.  Although not a true cucumber, fruit initially have a cucumber-like flavor, later developing a unique sour punch.  A favorite for pickling.  60-70 days to harvest.  25 seeds per packet.

CULTURE:  Direct sow seeds in spring after danger of frost has passed.  Seeds should be sown 2-3 per hill with hills spaced at least 3' in all directions.  Alternatively, seeds may be sown along a trellis with 12-24" final spacing between plants.  Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 5-10 days.  Harvesting regularly promotes yield.
