Our Famous 1-inch Pepquiño is back in season. The micro-cucumber that looks like a tiny watermelon! The slight sour cucumber flavour of Pepquiño makes it a perfect ingredient for salads, in stir-fried dishes or simply as a snack.

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

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.
