Cucamelon

Native to Mexico and Central America, where it is called sandita (little watermelon), this is an easy to grow, lush vine bearing a constant supply of edible fruit throughout the summer.

The adorable looking fruit, which appear like grape-sized watermelons have a taste of cucumber with a touch of lime and can be used as you would traditional cucumbers. Try them whole, in salads, pickled, chopped and added to salsas for extra texture and flavour or they can add a tasty twist to a cocktail!

As they don’t interest pests, resist drought and grow well outdoors given a sheltered yet sunny site, they are even easier to grow than a regular cucumber.

They can also be treated like a perennial providing you with delicious fruit every year.

When shopping can be good for the planet

We've taken care to source the greenest products to sell in our shop. That includes making sure that they're not overpackaged, or that they're made from recycled goods, so that they don't add to the waste mountain.

We also watch our waste at the Eden Project, recycling as much as we can, and even turning the food left overs from our cafes into soil through a giant composter!

Watch this video on how Eden 'does waste'.
