| Cucamelons, cute and crunchy on delicate vines.|
The tiny cucamelons appeared in early August and by the end of the month, they were full size.
These tiny crunchy melons are a fresh, mild treat from the late summer garden. Cute, but with a crisp and somewhat sturdy rind, sweet and bright but with a normal but refreshing taste, they are exceptionally fun to grow and eat.
Cucamelons are great for 'straight from the garden' munching in August and September. Anytime of the day, head out to the backyard garden. Eat a few cherry tomatoes - top them off with a cucumelon, fresh from the vine.
