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.
Did you know? The Mexican sour gherkin is not technically a cucumber. But it tastes quite a bit like a cucumber with a tangy, citrus twist.
We’re still in summer, and it sure is hot out, but we’re starting to see some fall classics come in – like kale, collards, and apples. Here’s what our farmers say they’ll be bring this week:
