Stella May I know what happens when you combine a mighty watermelon with a cool cucumber? Mouse Melon.

You get a cucamelon! The scientific name is the Melothria scabra. It's a grape watermelon that tastes like a limey cucumber. Doesn't that kinda intrigue you? You already know how I like to try new fruits so when this popped up I just had to share.
How do you eat it? Some just eat it right off the vine! They grow like cucumbers and a lot of the recipes that use a cucamelon use it just like a cucumber. Pickled, salads. 
AKA: mouse melon, Mexican sour gherkin, Mexican miniature watermelon, Mexican sour cucumber and pepquino
