I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

There are some cucumber relatives from places such as Egypt and India that are round. There are also a host of other vegetables/fruits that are related and similar to cucumbers and melons. Your seeds may have been one of these.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
