Armenian Cucumber seeds Yard Long Fruits!

Armenian Cucumber / Yard Long Cucumber
Heirloom
50-75 Days

Although the fruit looks and is called a cucumber this plant is actully botanicalyy a melon. This most unique cucumber produces an abundance of super long, fat fruits that grow up to 24 inches long and ribbed light green color. Crunchy and sweet. Great for pickle making. Performs well in hot climates. The plant is similar to that of a regular cucumber and a vigorous grower perfect for fences and trellis gardening where the fruit will hang down nice and straight. If grown on the ground the fruit has a tendancy to curl and twist. Pick fruits before frost. Grow as you would a regular cucumber.
