World’s Tiniest Watermelons?

September 10, 2016 -Mexican sour gherkins are here this week

Not a pickle. Not a watermelon.

They’re tiny cucumber-like vegetables that you eat whole – like a grape tomato. They go by many names: Cucamelon, Mouse melon, sandita (little watermelon in Spanish), and our favorite – Barbie’s watermelon.
