Melothria scabra
Grape-sized melon fruits!
Mouse Melon (Melothria scabra) is actually a variety of melon from Mexico and Central America. A vine with grape sized fruits that taste like vaguely tart cucumbers when freshly picked. The fruit makes a great addition to a mixed salad and can be pickled as you would gherkins. Use chicken wire to allow the plant to climb easily. Mouse melon (also known as cucamelon) is slow to start but will eventually reach a height of 1 metre.
