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 know as the Painted Serpent. Handle carefully to avoid bruising. Thrives in hot weather.

Interesting Cucumber

Trying the Striped Organic Cucumber for the first time. I will give you a review after they grow and I eat one. My criteria for Cukes has to be, less seeds, prolific, crisp and tasty...

Tasty cucumbers

Very prolific plant that produces cucumbers that can be eaten skin and all. They are best eaten when the cucumber is small about 8 inches long. Very crispy and a good keeper in the fridge.

Wonderful cucumber that produced all summer!

This is the first time I've ever had a cucumber survive a hot Texas summer... and these plants have produced sweet, crisp cucumbers all summer long with very little care. So delicious.
