(Melothria scabra) Newly rediscovered heirloom. 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.

before the last frost for an earlier harvest. Benefits
