(C. melo) A sweet round cucumber-melon with smooth crisp light green skin. The white interior reveals a savory tender flesh that is bitter-free and does not cause indigestion as other cucumbers can. Growth habit is spread out. A drought-resistant variety that does well in most places, including hot climates. Seed packet includes 24 seeds and growing instructions.

I didn’t know what to expect from these, as I had never grown a C. melo before, but I have to say that these are a highlight in my garden this summer. Crisp, clean, beautiful to look at and easily the best tasting cucumber I have grown in my garden. Very much a low, sprawling plant, the yield isn’t as dense as the lemon cucumbers, but the taste and appearance more than make up for it.
Thank you so much for your feedback! I am so glad you are enjoying them. The Fasano or Cianciuffo is one of the very favorites of many of my Italian friends.
