These little gems are about an inch long but look just like a watermelon - no, really, they are adorable!! Just to give you a better idea of their size, the plate I photographed them on is a saucer from a demitasse cup.
One could do so many things with them (including just eating them as the are!) Here are a few ideas for them...
Cucamelon and Radish Salad (from wanderlust & food stuff)
How awesome would this salad be if you used watermelon radishes???
Cucamelon Bloody Mary Salad (from Chicken in a Cherry Sauce)
But the thing that is really calling my name for these little beauties is...
Cucamelon Pickles!! (from homegrown-revolution)
You will also find everything you need to know about growing your own cucamelons on this page!
So go ahead, be brave - give the cuamelon a try.
