A book about plants for children* comments that "the Squirting Cucumber
fills up with water and squirts its seeds out. They travel at about 60
miles an hour". Which species is it? Does anyone know a seed source? No,
I am not planning to check the data, just aim the fruit. And yes, if
someone knows of a faster seed, I would like to hear of it.
