I didn't get to try the Horned Melon last year so I'm hopeful this will be the year. You two are very resourceful. Thumbs up

Thank you (from greene) I will pass the message along to PlantSister.

If you can grow cucumbers where you live the Horned Melon should do good for you. It's a fun plant.

Thank you PlantSister and Greene!!

This is a great tutorial for utilizing all of the Horned Melon. I think it could be used with so many other fruits to make the most of them... an orange comes to mind.
