Cucamelon: a Grape Size Watermelon Looking Cucumber

When I first saw cucamelon (Melothria scabra), I actually thought it was another generic-changing food. Forgive my ignorance, this grape-size mini cucumber is actually native to Mexico and Central America. Although its watermelon looking, it tastes more like a cucumber than a melon and has a slightly sour tang that’s akin to a pickle. Maybe due to its miniature size, it also has an adorable name – mouse melon.

If you are those ones have green thumbs, you can even plant them at home. They sprout on a vine and blossom easily. Sounds interesting? Get your seeds on amazon.
