Detailed Product Info

Itty bitty, bite-sized cucumber-like fruits form on this unique, sprawling but small leaved vine. Each bite is a refreshing, explosive sensation, and the flavor is a treat: sweet and pleasant, but predominantly tangy, hence the name. They do make lovely pickles. Not a true cucumber, but a member of the species Melothria scabra. A great choice for small spaces, those who love anything unique and for market growers. Also a very popular item sold at farmer's markets in packed in half-or-full pints. Trellis for best production, ease of harvest and use of space.
