A most prolific producer. This is one plant. Grows along a 4 by 8 trellis.

Still not getting more than a trickle, but I don't really care; can't say I'd queue for them. If I can find someone who wants them, I'll give my four plants away when they go dormant.

I've heard they don't taste very good.....what is your experience with them? Melons or cucumbers?

The cucamelons taste much like cucumbers. I image one would have to be hungry to actually relish them. I leave them out and eat at random. Thy appear to keep well for several days. They are sure prolific and rather attractive.
