Mexican Sour Gherkin

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange

These cucumber-like fruits can be started at the same time as regular cucumbers. We recommend starting indoors as the delecate foliage and tiny starts can get lost in the weeds. Once the plants are further along the vigorous fast-growing vines are easy to grow. Provide full sun for best results. Bears until frost (or muggy heat in the deep south!) Immature they taste like cucumbers. When fully mature they taste tangier, more like pickled cucumbers. Start harvesting about 1 inch long and determine your favorite ripeness. Trellissing recommended. 77 days. Cucumis sativus; Family: Cucurbit
