Do you know what cucamelons are? And do you know they can be grown in British Columbia?
Cucamelon is one name for the grape-sized fruit which looks like a mini watermelon. It’s also called a Mexican sour gherkin, or ‘sandiita’ in Spanish. As the name suggests, it’s a sour fruit!
It’s also delicious, and available right here in BC.
You can also grow them yourself, if you have the space – blog That Bloomin’ Garden has plenty of tips for would-be cucamelon growers!
