This just may be the cutest fruit of the summer

Have you heard about the latest food craze of the summer? They're called cucamelons, also known as Mexican Sour Gherkins.

Originating from Central America, these bite sized fruits are a perfect cross between a cucumber and a watermelon.

Like a grape, you can eat these fruits whole! No peeling needed.

So, what do cucamelons taste like? Surprisingly, nothing like watermelon. They have a citrus and tangy flavor with a cucumber bite.

Some use these versatile fruits in salsa, salad, and even cocktail drinks.

If you want to get your hands on these you can go to your nearest farmers market or you can even grow them in your own backyard.
