(Melothria scabra) Heirloom native to Mexico & Central America & first described scientifically in 1866 by the French Botanist Charles Victor Naudin.  Also known as 'Mexican Sour Gherkin' or 'Sandiita' meaning 'Little Watermelon' in Spanish, but also appears many times in other dialects translating as 'Mouse Melon'.  Small, tiny, grape sized fruit the size of a thumb with flavour similar to a cucumber / lime.  Flavour varies depending on time of harvest.  When picked young & still on vine flavour resembles cucumber, but when left to mature with fruit falling on ground, fruit will display a hint of sourness.  Best grown on a trellis.  Ideal for children to pick & eat straight from the vine.  Used in stir-fry, pickled, raw in salads, or chopped added to salsa for extra flavour & texure.
