Cyclanthera explodens - Exploding Cucumber


Out of stock

6 seeds per pack. A strange annual vine related to the common cucumber. Bears small, spiky fruits that upon ripening, "explode" to release their seeds. Fruits are said to be edible both when raw and ripe, but the vine is more commonly grown as an exotic novelty. Very vigorous, will climb if given support. Easy to grow. Care should be taken not to allow oneself to be hit in the eye with the projectile seeds. #2446
