Mexican Sour Gherkin

Mexican Sour Gherkins (Melothria scabra) are just about the cutest little things you have ever seen.  Looking more like Barbie-sized watermelons than cucumbers, the tiny fruit delivers a powerful crunch.  The flavor is both sweet and sour.  The dense foliage is covered with the sweetest little yellow flowers. Definitely worth a shift from the vegetable garden to the ornamental garden.
