Starts out slow then grows extremely fast. Vine is very thin. Unique among cucurbits in that female flowers appear before male flowers, not the reverse. The vines can fill out a fence.

Small cucumber-like fruit are shaped like baby watermelons. They are good added to salads or can be pickled. They have a cucumber-like taste with a touch of lemon. The ornamental vines have tiny leaves and flowers and are perfect for the cottage garden. Very unique and fun for kids. Huge yields.
