The fruits are small enough to fit into a teaspoon, yet bite into one and the flavor is unique, pure cucumber with a refreshing tinge of lime. The plant will climb or hang. So place a fence or hang a big pot high. Sow under protection in pots late February to April. Harvest them when they are the size of a grape, but still nice and firm.
Japanese knotweed ( Polygonum cuspidatum ) is an invasive plant mostly along the waterfront. Wan likes this plant a lot because the young leaves are very tasty.
