Armenian Cucumber Seeds

This high cropping cucumber is a wonderfully different addition to the summer garden. Armenian cucumbers are best grown on a trellis or similar and they will produce an abundance of long green fruit that are soft skinned, mildy flavoured and burpless. Also known as ‘Yard Cucumber’ or ‘Snake Cucumber’ when left to grow. The fruit can easily reach 90cm long however, pick at 20-30cm for optimal flavour and tenderness.

It is also important to note that while tasting and looking like a cucumber, this plant is closely related to and will cross pollinate with melons.

Avoid watering leaves directly to prevent mildew. Pick regularly to encourage more fruit.
