(C. melo) A gourmet Armenian-type striped cucumber with long slightly grooved fruit, firm flesh and few seeds. Flesh is savory, crisp, tender bitter-free and does not cause indigestion as other cucumbers can. As a plant this cucumber exhibits slow initial growth that is well rewarded by disease resistance, taste, and beauty. Perfect for all climates but grows exceptionally well in warm-hot climates. Seed packets include growing instructions. 24 Seeds.
