Wanna have some fun with an unwary visitor? Or delight the kids? “Squirting Cucumber provides excellent garden entertainment! The small, 2” cucumbers fill with slimey juice as they ripen & the pressure eventually causes the cucumber to burst off its stalk and explosively shoot up to 6 yards away - leaving a trail of seeds along the way. Just gently shake the vine when the cukes are fat & ready, and KABOOM! Ecballium elaterium is a trailing, bushy perennial with yellow, funnel-shaped flowers and palm-like, bristly, watermelon-scented leaves. Rich soil and regular water is best. I can be grown in the garden or ½ barrel. Don’t eat the cucumbers, as the juice is a cathartic. Remove any unwanted seedlings. To 1' high & 3' wide.
