Not a single one of the seeds even germinated.

When I tasted my "mini watermelons" they were crisp and tasted a lot like cucumber with a little bit of the taste of the green part of a watermelon.

I'm going to plant them and see what I get anyways but I'm pretty sure it will be actual watermelons not the cucamelons pictured.

I ordered these seeds, planted them indoors in early spring and transplated to the garden in May. At first I didn't think they were going to make it but suddenly they just took off! I put a chickenwire cage around the plant to keep the rabbits away. The vines grew and covered the fence and stayed contained to the fence (no wandering). The vines look like bindweed. When I tasted my "mini watermelons" they were crisp and tasted a lot like cucumber with a little bit of the taste of the green part of a watermelon. Because they were so crisp and they tasted like cucumber I decided to pickle some of them. What fun! The came out crispy on the outside and a little soft in the middle so it is like a little explosion in your mouth. I had many of my friends taste the "little pickles" and they all want more so I'll be planting these every year!

I gave these seeds plenty of nurturing and care, keeping them warm inside the boiler room of my basement. While other seeds came up in two days flat, these struggled to get their heads above water (or soil). I'm not disrespecting Hinterland Trading Co--they gave me a free bag of romaine lettuce seeds I can't wait to plant--but they need to honestly provide more seeds to make up for the poor germination rate, which seems to be somewhat intrinsic to the species. Still, I can't really vote these down so much, since I had heard other reports of difficulty in growing.

*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.

Easy to grow fast growing fun to see crawling all over. Great to grow with kids for the speed of growth. All the seeds sprouted after transplant to a big container they reached for the sky! I strung rope up to our porch roof now it grows up the rope. I measured a days growth to 8" there flowers and tiny melons already just 2 weeks after trans plant. I will have lots of fruit from these seeds can't wait to tast them.

I tasted these a couple of years ago in someone elses garden and needed to get myself some. This year I grew three plants and gave other plants away to some friends.

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.

My children and I ordered a selection of really fun seeds from you. (Hmong Red Cucumber
Black Sea Man Tomato, Rare Tigger Melon, Mexican Miniature Watermelon, Toga Striped Eggplant, Purple Cauliflower, Unwins Exhibiton 7 Pound Onion, Rare Red Bull Brussels Sprout)

My germination rate has been about 25% or less. All my other seeds from other companies are doing wonderful on my tables, but my Hirt's seeds are in a category of their own, small, stunted, wimpy, or not at all. I will not be ordering from you again, and I'm sorry I wasted my money.

Do not waste your time. I waited 3 weeks for seeds and then they get here and they had been confiscated by the postal service because they weren't cleared through customs.

Can't really dock the seeds too much because I'm probably living in the wrong area for this plant. I doubt Utah has the humidity this plant requires, I was able to get one sprout indoors and one outside, but both quickly died once they broke ground. I will be sending my remaining seeds to family in Texas to see how they do closer to native soil and conditions. I've never had problems with Hirts seeds before, and these plants need humidity which my area has none of.
