CUCAMELON Mouse Melon, Melothria scabra
This popular little watermelon-like vegetable has a small size, and a big cucumber-like crunch! Perfect for salads and fresh-snaking. Plants are s, and grow best when given a support to climb, which also makes for easy harvesting.
Seeds per pack: 10
Mouse melons can be planted outdoors in spring, in a sunny location, or the seeds can be started early indoors in cooler climates. Place just under the surface of the soil, and keep the soil moist until germination. Mouse melons grow on light s, so should be supported. Plants will produce fruit in the first season, as are annual plants.
