Horned Melon  10 seeds

Cucumis metuliferus, or ‘horned melon’ is a fast growing annual vine related to the cucumber family that is best planted in a greenhouse as our summers are not really warm enough for it. Prized by some for its slightly bitter papaya and watermelon flavour. Beware though the fruits have thorns and the leaves have very small spines. Best grown for its novelty value.
