What Are Those? - Mexican Sour Gherkins

As promised, here is a picture of the other never-before-seen produce Amy found at the Billings Forge Farmers Market:

These things that look like teeny-tiny watermelons are Mexican Sour Gherkins. They are a type of cucumber, as you can see in this picture:

We ate them as-is, and they had a sort-of bitter (sour, we suppose), kind-of citrusy, cucumbery taste. We hope we find them again, because if we do, we'd like to pickle them, or put them in a salad, or even use them as a garnish for a Bloody Mary. Yum!

Sorry to say I didn't like them. :(
To me they tasted like a bitter cucumber, and I was disappointed the way I would be as a kid when I'd on occasion peel a cucumber from my mom's garden only to find it was bitter.
