Introducing The Cucamelon - The Most Adorable Fruit You Should Be Eating This Summer

August 10, 2016

Cucamelons are the cutest fruit ever! Just look at them – they're like tiny watermelons that taste like a slightly tangy cucumber.

Unlike watermelons, you can eat cucamelons whole, just like grapes, so you don't have to worry about cutting around the rind.

These adorable little fruits are native to Mexico and Central America, where they're also known as "Mexican sour gherkins" or "mouse melons."

The vine-y plant is super easy to grow, resistant to pests, and each harvest has very high yields. So you might want to consider growing your own!

The best way to eat them is straight up, like grapes, but they’re also a great addition to salads. You will first get a little hit of citrus, followed up by a wonderful cucumber flavor.
