Enormously productive plants yield abundant, non-edible fruits that look like small round watermelons with short, thick spines. Great for an unusual decorative display or for kids’ crafts. Holds for a long time in the green stage on the vines.
Care: Space 2-3′ apart in all directions. Cucumbers need heat and well-drained soil: plant in full sun in raised beds or hills. Vining plants can be allowed to sprawl or grown on a trellis.
