(C. melo) A round early sweet productive cucumber-melon with dark green skin with blotching and light longitudinal furrows. Fruit skin is crisp with a white interior revealing a savory tender flesh that is bitter-free and does not cause indigestion as other cucumbers can. Growth habit is slightly bushy, with fruit setting about 1-2 feet down the stem. Seed packet includes 24 seeds and growing instructions.

You really can’t go wrong with any of the italian varieties found on this website, but this one wins for cuteness. This one is similar in taste and texture to some of the other varieties (crisp and sweet), but it’s just so fun to find these cute little round balls hanging on the vines.
