ARMENIAN CUCUMBER (90 days heirloom)

1

Germ 6-10 days
Middle Eastern Heirloom pre-1400
This long pale green cucumber with white flesh is deliciously different. If grown on a trellis the fruit will be long and straight but they will curl if grown on the ground. Fruit remains edible, tender, and tasty at a larger size than most cukes. A relative of the honey dew melon. 20 seeds

Indoors- Individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant after last frost without disturbing the roots

Outdoors- 1/2” deep after last frost in warm soil at least 70 degrees

Harvest- Pick daily to keep the harvest flowing.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost. Mulch and keep well watered. Trellising the vines allows for good air circulation and takes less space than hills and provides shade for heat sensitive crops like lettuce.

Great in the heat!

We grew this for two main reasons: 1. My husband is allergic to cucumbers -- and THIS cuke is actually in the melon family, so he can, and does, enjoy them. 2. I figured that if they're from the Middle East, they must be able to grow in high heat. Here in Northern CA summer days peak at over 100 degrees all too often. These cucumbers handled the heat with aplomb. DO be aware that these guys grow HUGE very QUICKLY. Some weighed more than 10 lbs! Happily, I discovered that at this stage they COOK UP WELL, like summer squash. I will always grow these.
