Have you ever had a cucamelon? They're a dollhouse-sized savory fruit hybrid of watermelon and cucumber, also known as Mexican sour gherkins. Here in the States, they're called mouse melons. Apparently, they taste like pure cucumber with a hint of lime.

I've yet to see them in grocery stores or markets, but James shows us how to grow them ourselves. They can be eaten straight off the plant, tossed with olive oil and salt, used as a martini garnish, or pickled.

I'm gonna have to get me some seeds!
