Pros: Shared the outcome of a mouse melon trial. Innovation.
Thanks for introducing us to mouse melons. Ours are growing well and supplementing our summer salads. We've pickled some and Noni is brining a batch to see how they'll go in a martini. More to follow...

Pros: Quick to grow, prolific. Picked young, tastes good. Grow well in small space if required.
Interesting little plant. Tried for the first time this year, and was pleasantly surprised. Great in salads when picked young. It will cover quite a large area for its size. I think that it should be used by more people if only for its novelty value, although it tastes pretty good. I now have some self seeded ones coming up.
