I was so fascinated over these cute Cucamelons (Mexican Watermelons) when I saw them on Pinterest, that I had to plant some myself. The vines were rapidly growing and I couldn’t wait to harvest my first bushel. It took about two months before I could get about two handful of cucumbers…yep I said a handful. I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get much considering that there were vines everywhere; but I was glad that I planted them, now I’ve experience growing and tasting them.
I read that some people don’t like the taste of them…but I like them. They taste like cucumber with a little tartness. I’m going to have a little bit more patient before I tear down the vines to see if I can get another harvest before the growing season is over. So if you decide to plant cucamelons, realize that they need some space to grow.
Here is a salad that I found online that you may want to try, incase you grow them or buy them.
