Size of that cucamelon tuber
First cucamelon of the year 💚
Oh what the ones we saw a Kew yesterday Lin? It could have been🤔 just been looking back at photo's I took yesterday but not of that one 🙄😄 @linfoster
I tried to grow cucameloms and they died 🤣😭😭
I grown them last year @kimmy01 lovely 😊
Oh no @nategk 😢💚
Looking forward to watching this grow as I have been after one myself.
I would really like to grow cucamelons and so I ordered seeds for next year! Do you have any tips on germinating/growing them? 😄
Interested to see how this looks. I’ve never seen one before. Keep me posted @kimmy01
@bamels @mrsburns If you swipe right on this pic you'll see them from last year 😀
Just like cucumbers @lewis8232 In the greenhouse with a lid over them until they germinate... 😊 keep repotting and they will grow, they need support. If you swipe right on this picture you'll see when I grew them last year. 👍💚
@kimmy01 Thanks 😄 Are they perennials???
Gave the school a cucamelon plant after relazing I was the only one eating them last year 😁 2 plants will do me one for allotment one for home... And this one has flower buds 💚
Potted on 21/05/18 ready for allotment
Are you going to grow them outside kimmy? @kimmy01
No not really sure how they will do in the north east outside @bandicoot I was thinking in the greenhouse and Polly tunnel.. Already planted one in the home greenhouse. @bandicoot
Just wondered 😀 I tried a hanging basket in Derbyshire last year but dried out, but did better in a container and in the plastic tomato greenhouse - think we had 3 whole fruit! 😂 @kimmy01
I might end up doing them outside if I run out of space then 😊 I got loads of fruit from mine in the greenhouse @bandicoot
Finding its way on the trellis in the greenhouse 😀
Have you grown these before?
Yes @Emma915Jones I grew them last year.. I tried to over winter them but they turned to mush.. I'll try again 👍
Okay x I grew them for first time last year, great plants but I didn’t like the fruit x
Yeah they where not amazing, better young or with salads or gin 😁 🍸 @Emma915Jones
Young? Maybe I left them too long. I do agree with the gin but I don’t drink enough to warrant the excessive crop. Enjoy them :-)
LoL I understand I'm giving them another go plus I have a pollytunel to set up I want them in at the allotment... If I get sick I can trade with someone 😂 @Emma915Jones
(23/04/18) 💚 Sown 10 days ago 😊

#cucamelons of 2018 💚
I gave my #cucamelon a photo shoot since this is the last of them for the year 😂 💚
Oh that is making me sad. The veg are coming to an end
They taste like cucumber but a bit sweeter @scaryskates they have a crunch to them
I'm actually glad @charlotte it will give me a chance to sort the garden and allotment out :)
But I have nothing left to do
The last 💚 #cucamelons 💚 from the greenhouse this year
Do they taste nice? Never tried one before. Cute aren't they.
@bandicoot Mine last year 😊
Apparently, if you keep the roots frost free, they'll grow again next year. I didn't know that until I'd already pulled all mine up last year!
Oh yeah I found a YouTube video about them and randomly found that out too. Did you have tours outside? @dan1978
I see a little #cucamelon 😄
Just came though and I dropped the pot , oops. Repotted now and looking OK
