This is SUCH a fun plant to grow. It is also called "Mexican sour gherkin". Actually a tiny melon that looks like a little watermelon but tastes like a cucumber. Vigorous vines grow to 10 feet so provide a sturdy trellis! Imagine using these to garnish a cocktail. The sooner you pick them, the better as they get a bit tart as they age on the vine. This is a warm season plant. Direct seed only after danger of frost has past. 70 days to maturity.
