(C. melo) AKA: Medium Long of Barese. A very early cucumber with light green cylindrical fruit, with ridging firm flesh and few seeds. Flesh is savory, crisp yet tender, bitter-free and does not cause indigestion as other cucumbers can. Fruit is covered with soft fuzz that is easily brushed off for enjoying raw or as an addition to salads. Perfect for all climates but grows exceptionally well in warm-hot climates. From the Polignano region of southern Italy. Seed packet includes 24 seeds and growing instructions.

You cannot beat the crisp texture and delicious taste of these cucumbers, and I did not find the fuzz to be off putting at all.
