Mouse Melon is a tiny cucumber relation that looks like like a doll-sized watermelon. A long-lost heirloom, it was grown by the Incas and has only recently be rediscovered. It's easy to grow, highly productive, and super fun to eat.

Mouse Melons have a sweet cucumber flavor with a tangy twist. They make crunchy snacks, add zip to salads and are great for pickling. Kids love to eat them right off the vine.

The charming vines have delicate leaves and flowers, pretty enough to grow in a hanging basket. They produce generous yields. If you grow for a farmer's markets, this will stop traffic. 60-70 days.

Germination:

Thoroughly moisten your seed-starting mix, and then fill your pots/containers to within 1/2" of the top.

Place two or three seeds into each small container or each cell of a seed starter. Cover the seed with a light layer of soil.

Water to ensure good seed-to-mix contact. You can use a plant mister or just dribble a stream of water over the top. You don't need to soak the soil, just moisten the top layer.
(You don't want to heavily water and "push" seeds to deep that they can't germinate.)

Keep the mix moist but not soaking wet. Lay some plastic kitchen wrap and a rubber band over pots to keep in heat and moisture.

Place the pots in a warm, sunny spot or on top of a heat mat. (Seeds won't germinate until the soil itself is 75-80 degrees.)

Check pots daily. As soon as you see sprouts, remove the covering and place the pots in a sunny window or under grow lights, keeping the lights just an inch or two above the tops of the plants.

15 heirloom seeds.

These cucomelon seeds are great! I planted them outdoors in small pots mid-june, and they had sprouted by day 4! Can't wait to see what this little crop yields!

Bought these last year and back for more! Last season they all sprouted and we got a decent crop despite the terrible summer weather we had. Love these tiny mouse melons straight from the vine.
