description for "Cucumber: Cucumis sativus 'Mexican Sour Gherkin'"

For a sweet, refreshing taste, take a bite out of this cucumber. Known for its tender and tangy citrus flavor, this unique variety resembles a miniature watermelon, more than a cucumber. The plant can be trellised or left to cascade from a hanging basket. Any way its grown, it will delight with its mouth watering taste and bite size fruit. Use in salads, pickled or eaten raw. Maturity in 75 days. Edited by S.Derr
