*Update, 4/9/2012* So far, four of the ten seeds I received germinated, and only after about three and a half weeks. I was so unimpressed with them that I left their peat cups out for about four days before my mother carted them back inside. You can imagine my shock when, in the middle of dry seed starting mix, I see a sliver of green and realize "that's it!" The plants have now grown admirably--they're like stick figure cousins of a full sized cucumber, but they're healthy and growing well. Some things just take time, and you can't give up on them until it's truly over--and these plants have helped me to learn that.
*Update, 6/29/2012* These things are doing amazingly as of now. Only three made it to maturity, but wow, did they manage to beat the odds and become undisputed winners. They always remain small relative to a full-sized cucumber plant, making them an excellent choice for container gardening. They haven't even thought about flowering yet, though.
*Update, 7/8/2012* These plants are not small at all, just so you know. Although the vines are thin, they're also tall; they're over 6 feet now and still hungry for more space to climb.Read more ›
UPDATE: 3/31/15 I bought Cucamelon seeds from a different seller. As I expected the seeds I received from this seller was not the correct seeds. The seeds I received looked like regular watermelon seeds. I received seeds from a new seller and they looked like I thought they should. They are small, white an shaped like little footballs. Amazon needs to evaluate his seller because they are selling fraudulent merchandise and they also come from China! I will attach a picture so anyone unsure can compare what they have . The seeds I received from this seller is on the right. The correct seeds fro a cucamelon plant are on the left.
They take a long time to get going. They seemed to sprout right away (I did it in a seed tray inside, one seed per little pot like thing) however they took until mid summer to get big. Once they did I got a good number of tiny little cucumbers that were absolutely delicious.
I grew them in big pots with little stakes and things because they are vines. They lasted all summer and I ate my last cucumbers the end of September.
I plan to buy them again, and not share this time!
As an FYI it's the next year. I have bought these and planted them 2 years in a row now and they've worked both times. I plan to buy them again.

Hard to germinate. Waited all summer for my cute little cuke-melons. What I got was one pitiful vine with one yellowish melon about the size of an orange. Read morePublished 13 days ago by SG
