Easy to grow, tasty and unusual little fruits
This unusual little fruit is a vigorous climber/trailer that is both pest and drought resistant. Forming grape sized cucumbers that taste of watermelon with a tiny tinge of lime, these are easier to grow than regular cucumbers and produce a constant stream of fruits throughout the summer months.

Number of plants: 5

Variety: Cucamelon (organic)

Can be grown in: Pots and containers, grow bags, raised beds. They will need some support as the vines can grow to 1.2-1.5m in height.

In the kitchen: These taste wonderful in a salad with cherry tomatoes, can be stir-fried, pickled, eaten as a fruit or even popped on a cocktail stick in your martini!

Can be delivered from: late April to July.
