Cucamelons are native to Mexico and Central America, where the Native Aztecs cultivated them for centuries. They are small, grape-sized fruits, also known as Mexican sour gherkins, miniature watermelons, and mouse melons.
Cucamelons have a tangy, citrusy flavor and taste like cucumbers with a hint of sourness. Eat them raw right off the vine, pickled, or in salads. Loaded with nutrients, they'll be the cutest superfood you'll ever grow!
Corn, lettuce, greens, peas, beans, radishes, onions, dill, carrots, beets, borage, and flowers are all beneficial companions. Don't plant cucumbers near potatoes, squash, or gourds.
Starter will be in a 4" reusable nursery pot.
