Mexican Mini Sour Gherkins aka Cucamelons or Mexican Mini Watermelons (15 seeds)
CUCAMELON SEEDS - aka Mexican Mini Watermelons or Sour Gherkins. You may have seen these little Cucamelons go viral on TikTok - for good reason. They are Amazing! They are not actually watermelons, but mini tart cucumbers whose outside looks just like a watermelon! They are tart, and crisp and make excellent pickles. Fruits are about 1" long at maturity and vines once established grow vigorously and produce a huge crop. These seeds are very tiny, so we recommend planting 2-3 seeds per spot, and starting them indoors if possible. Our Cucamelon seeds are grown in the USA and are Heirloom, Non-GMO seeds. Produces abundant crops of 1-2" fruits reminiscent of tiny watermelons that fall off the vines when ripe. Sweet cucumber flavor contrasted by a surprising sourness, as if they are already pickled. Great for growing on a trellis. 60-70 days.
- Direct sow seeds outdoors 1" deep after danger of frost or for an earlier start, start seeds indoors 2-4 weeks before the last frost.
- Thin to 3-4 plants in a 6' radius
- Germination in 7-14 days (as little as 2 days with the Super Starter Kit!)
- Full sun
Green Thumb Tip: Sow seeds outdoors in 12" diameter hills after the last frost when soil is warm. Space hills 6' apart in all directions. Can also be started indoors 2-4 weeks before the last frost for an earlier harvest. Benefits from consistent moisture. Provide support for vines to save space.
