The Q&A Archives: Cucumbers and Watermelons..

Question: If you plant cucumber and watermelon next to eachother will they cross polinate making the watermelon taste like cucumber?

Answer: Plant cucumbers and watermelons will not change the fruits each plant develops. Watermelon will taste like watermelon and cucumbers will taste like cucumbers. However, if you were to save the seeds from the fruits of either and plant them, the resulting fruit will be a little different in shape, color, size and flavor. As long as you don't save the seeds from this year's crop, everything will be just fine. Enjoy!
