Mouse Melons

Not heard of them? While, they are dead trendy these days. And, though I say so myself, 'The Urban Kitchen Gardener' helped to crank up their popularity. These amazing little fruits are from the cucurbit family - see more here. You grow them in much the same way as cucumbers - they are good climbers, so ideally give them some netting or similar to climb up. The children in our school garden love them!
