(Sow April  & May) Cucamelon Fruit Seeds (Pack of 65 Seeds)
These tiny fruits originate in Central America, deliver a taste of watermelon with  a hint of lime.  The trailing vines are rampant and at home in any unheated glasshouse as well as a sunny sheltered spot outdoors.  

Despite their exotic origins they are much easier to grow than regular cucumbers and not touched by the usual range of pests.  

The plant is actually a perennial and provided the radish like root is dug up and stored much as a dahlia tuber over winter, they will flourish for many years.

Cultivation advice: 

Sow under cover (protected / heated) from Mid spring April & May, 3-4 seeds 1/2in deep in a 3in pot in good compost.  (These will not germinate in cold / damp conditions, use a heated propagator or somewhere very warm (20-25C))

Transplant no later than 3 weeks after seeding as they have a tap root that can be easily damaged. 

Best under glass but will grow outdoors in s sheltered sunny spot.
Will tolerate drought better than cucumbers.  Avoid over-watering.

Provide support and space as these will rampantly trail over a large area
Keep them picked and they’ll keep producing.
