Cucumber - Armenian - Cucumis melo (flexuosus group)
Tender Annual Heirloom. Introduced from Armenia to Italy in the 1400s, this unusual and attractive 12"-18" cucumber is always sweet and crispy, even when fruit is large. Thin-skinned with dense flesh, few seeds, and a pleasant, mild flavor, it is perfect for the fresh market. Handle carefully to avoid bruising. Thrives in hot weather.
Soil & Water: Cucumbers love rich soil that is high in organic matter and well drained. Water heavily during fruiting.
Planting & Growing: Cucumbers seem to do best when night temperatures are around 60 degrees and day temperatures around 90 degrees.
Harvesting & Storage: These cukes grow from 2-3 feet long and 2 inches in diameter, but are best eaten when between 12-15 inches long.
Did You Know? Botanically, Armenian cucumbers are a close relative of the honeydew melon.
