Cucamelon Seeds

Cucamelon Seeds


Cucamelons, are also called: Mexican miniature watermelon, Mexican sour cucumber, Mexican sour gherkin, mouse melon, or pepquinos.


Known to have been a part of the Aztec diet, cucamelon is native to Mexico and Central America and is commonly served in Central America today as a delicacy. They have been a staple of Mexican cuisine since pre-Columbian times.

Cucamelon is a vigorous vining plant with fruit about the size of grapes that tastes like cucumbers with a tinge of sourness. They are highly prolific and a single plant can produce hundreds of fruits. 

As with all cucumbers, make sure to provide them with a trellis.
