75 days. Incredible, small cucumber-like fruit are shaped like baby watermelons. They are good added to salads or can be pickled. They have a cucumber-like taste with a touch of lemon. The ornamental vines have tiny leaves and flowers and are perfect for the cottage garden. Very unique and fun for kids.

i have grown these with my Daycare kids for several years now and they are a favorite! They produce VERY well and germinate well too. We have grown them in grow bags and they spread like regular cucumbers but have delicate little flowers. Last year we grew them in hanging baskets to save space. They still produced well but not as much. These have been a part of our garden for over 5 years now.
