Cucumis Sativus

30 SEEDS

Crystal Apple Cucumber

This high yielding heirloom cucumber produces sweet & crunchy apple sized fruit with a mild taste. The skin is relatively smooth, thin, and tender, making for a great variety to eat fresh while still being equally suited to pickling.

Growing this variety up a trellis will leave more space in your garden and also help reduce any chance of disease, however, left to its own devices will happily sprawl across the ground.

In cool climates sow after the risk of frost. Avoid watering leaves directly to prevent mildew.
