After what seemed like forever I was able to transplant these cute vines (about 12 of them) into a large whiskey barrel. We put in a trellis so my new plants would have something to climb. I have to admit it did take some time before we saw any blossoms but when it did, the tiny yellow flowers were just adorable! Then a few weeks later we had tiny "watermelons" hanging on the vine. The taste was so different and fun. Tart, crisp, and the flavor of cucumber. We loved them. I didn't make a dish out of them we would just pick and pop them in out mouths. The kids were over on day and we would take a cucamelon, some fresh basil and cherry tomatoes and make a caprice snack. YUMMY!!
We are planning to grow them again next summer!!
