(C. melo) Very early cucumber with splotched light and dark green cylindrical fruit, slightly grooved, with firm flesh and few seeds. Flesh is savory, crisp yet tender, bitter-free and does not cause indigestion as other cucumbers can. Fruit is perfect raw for snacking or as an addition to salads. Perfect for all climates but grows exceptionally well in warm-hot climates. Seed packet includes 24 seeds and growing instructions.
