Cucumber (Mexican Sour Gherkin, a.k.a. "Cucamelon")

"This variety, which is also known as 'Mexican Gherkin,' produces large numbers of grape-sized fruit with a marbled skin that resemble tiny watermelons.  Fruit has the same taste and crunch of a cucumber but with a refreshing burst of sour lemon.  Native to Mexico and Latin America, the tiny fruits are known as 'sandita' and are perfect for stir-fries, pickling, salsa, desserts or martinis.  We suggest that this cucumber is best grown on a trellis or other structure to support the long vines and myriad of small cucumbers, and to make picking much easier."
