Cook’s Note and About the Recipe:
Some people called them mouse melons, Mexican sour gherkins, Mexican miniature watermelons, Mexican sour cucumbers, and pepquinos. The plant is native to Mexico and Central America. It is sometimes called a savory fruit, resembling a tiny watermelon. They are about the size of grapes and taste a little like a cucumber, lime or fava bean.
They are used in stir-fries, salads, can be pickled, or just enjoyed as a raw snack. Some people like to add them to salsas or use them like olives for drinks. I loved combining them with radishes for a bright mini salad. If you see them in your market, do give them a try. They are strangely addictive.
