Just to say a big thank you! Veg plants arrived, beautifully packed & so healthy looking. First class service from the moment I placed my order, many thanks.

Supplied as a packet of 5 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
An interesting cross between a cucumber and a melon producing striped cucumber-like fruit up to 12" (30 cm) in length but slightly fatter - though we think these are best harvested and eaten when around 6" - 8" (15 - 20 cm) long.
This is more cucumber than melon - but has a distinctly different melony flavour and the skin is more firm just like a melon. Very fast to mature.
Definitely something to try!
Primarily for growing under protection it will also fair well in a sheltered spot outside.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
