BROWN RUSSIAN CUCUMBER **sold out**

1

Germ 6-10 days
Ukrainian Heirloom
Intorduction from Ukraine 1879. When ripe, this cucumber is definitely very different than others having crackled, rusty brown skin. It can be picked young at 3-4” with whitish yellow skin, but still maintains really good flavor at the ripe and unique brown stage. 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.

New cucumber to try

I decided to try this new variety and am not disappointed. It is crispy when it's yellow and delicious. I just pick a fat cucumber and it's at the brown stage. Not sure what it tastes like yet. It's good to try something new!
