Organic Cucumber, Striped (1/4 lb)

Burpless Cucumber with a Mild Flavor

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, green with ridges has a dense flesh, few seeds, and a pleasant, mild flavor, it is perfect for the fresh market. Also known as the Painted Serpent. Handle carefully to avoid bruising. Thrives in hot weather.

Did You Know? Botanically, Armenian cucumbers are a close relative of the honeydew melon.

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.
