Are Cucamelons Good For You?

Have you heard of the newest craze in fruit? The Cucamelon (also known as the cutest fruit on earth) looks like a tiny watermelon and tastes like a cucumber mixed with limes. How unique is that?

Cucamelons can be eaten alone, pickled, used in salsa, or even placed into a drink for an added flavor. These tiny fruits are great for those who love gardening and are always looking for something new to grow. You can grow Cucamelons in a pot, barrel, plastic bag (however you'll want to transfer the root after a few days to allow the plant to fully grow), or directly into your garden. Cucamelons have a maturity of 80 days, which is excellent news for gardeners! You're able to grow Cucamelons when it starts to get cold (like in the Fall)! 

When growing season is over, you're able to remove the root from the ground to store in a cool, dry place. The following Spring, you can re-plant the root and it will produce ten times as many Cucamelons as it had the previous year! 

You might be wondering if Cucamelons offer any nutritional benefits. The answer is: YES! Cucamelons are low in calories and fat and are a source of simple sugars (such as fiber and vitamins) which prolong aging, as well as protecting and rejuvenating cells. The next time you want to try something new and interesting, give a Cucamelon a try!

    Sine my husband is diabetic – I need to know how many cuamelons would be considered a serving – and how many carbs in that serving? The only thing I can find is that 1 cucamelon is 0 carbs – but that doesn’t help because no one would ever eat just 1!!

    I’m growing them now. They are great in tzatziki in place of cucumber, when they actually make it from the vine to the house without everyone eating them. Very heavy bearing vines, happy to grow up tomato cages and up just about anything else.
