Mexican Gherkin Cucumber is a must have culinary garden favorite that produces cucumber fruits shaped like baby watermelons that are surprisingly sweet with a touch of tangy lemon flavor. An excellent addition to salads or pickled, these finger size fruits are just 1" to 2" inches and grow on vines that prefer trellising or cascading. Add a touch of whimsy to your cutting garden with this unique summer charmer that resembles miniature watermelons. Great fun for a child's garden or the young at heart! A great choice for a patio garden as the sweet flowers are equally interesting so they make a great addition to hanging baskets. Also know as cucamelon or mouse melon, this is one of our all time favorites! 65 days. Packet: 25 seeds.
