The Mexican Sour Gherkin (Melothria scabra) is producing lots of yummy little cucumber-like fruits. This is my second year growing them.
I’ve been trying to grow their cousin, the West Indian Burr Gherkin for two years straight but either the seeds (obtained from two different sources) have not been very viable or it just has a very low germination rate. I’m going to go more hardcore on that next year.
In the meantime these little “Barbie doll melons” are easy to grow and abundant. Although I rarely seem to get any home with me, preferring to pop them into my mouth while I work on my community garden plot where they are growing.
