Fascinating and colourful ornamental 'cucumber species' on vigorous trailing plants to grow as ground cover or over trellis. The 'fruits' make unusual and very fashionable indoor decorations. A half hardy annual. Cucumus species Cucurbutaceae. Native to Africa with intriguing common names such as 'Hedgehog' or 'Gooseberry Gourd', 'Burr Gherkin' and 'Paddy Melon', although they are neither gourds, gherkins or melons, nor are they edible!
