Mexican Sour Gherkins

Seen at the Blowing Rock NC Farmers Market:

Are these little things cute or what?  They look like little watermelons, but they're cucumbers.  The vendor said they sell them to chefs, who pickle them and use them for garnishes.

The botanical name is Melothria scabra and seeds are available at a number of heirloom seed supply sources.

I want some!
