The Mexican cucamelon, also called sandita cucumber or Mexican sour gherkin is a climbing plant which bears tiny (ca 2-3 cm) green fruits throughout the summer. Botanically, it is not a cucumber but a related pumpkin species. Sandita fruits which
look like miniature watermelons are crisp and have a pronounced gherkin flavor.
