ARMENIAN CUCUMBER (90 days Heirloom)

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


Germ 6-10 Days

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.

Armenian Cucumber, more tasty than ones more familiar

Once you grow Armenian, you will want to grow it year after year after year. Makes the best sweet or dill relish you are apt to taste anywhere except home made. Excellent for hot dogs, or for your food truck, or the refreshment stand at school.


hard to find favorite

I've ordered this item for years from Pinetree. It does well growing here in the Upper Midwest, zone 4 (zone 3 pre-2012 ). What I enjoy most is the eatin' - this 'Armenian' strain is very much preferred over 'Armenian' able to be had at big-box stores. The latter ones have darker-green skin that make their 'Armenian', sometimes also referred to as 'Striped Serpent', much worse than Pinetree's strain; the darker skin is much more fibrous, bitter, & tough than the pale-skin one sold here. The lighter one somehow is more refreshing in summer than most cukes, If there's one thing I must have from Pinetree it's 'Armenian'.

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.
