(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.

I stumbled upon cucumber shop while seeking out this particular variety of cucumber.
Similar in flavor to the very popular Armenian cucumber, but a bit crisper in texture, and a much more beautiful cucumber. Not as prolific as your standard Armenian, but it’s very exciting to watch the little immature fruits grow into their more mature “snakes”. Each one is a treasure!
