The World's Smallest Watermelons

Okay, so they are not really watermelons.
But aren't they cute?
They are "fairy cucumbers"
that I grew from seeds
given to me by a good friend.

They taste kind of like
a lemony cuke.

And they are cuteness itself
growing on the climbing vine
and hanging down like little jewels.

I hope to save seeds...
but have been warned
that they might have cross polinated
with the nearby pumpkins, cukes and squash.

We'll see what happens next year.

(**Note...the more common name for these is "Mexican Sour Gherkin.")
