The micro-cucumber that looks like a tiny watermelon!

“…the world’s smallest watermelon” -  NY Daily News

 “Small but perfectly formed Pepquiño "micro melons", 20 times smaller than their full size counterparts” - Telegraph

“ … the world's only bite-sized melon” - Slashfood

All natural, the Pepquiño is a very ancient species which makes it difficult to determine its precise origin. Our research shows that this ‘micro-cucumber’ was first found in South America and is actually closely related to the melon. Pepquiño can be eaten whole (with the skin), fried or pickled.
