PAINTED SERPENT CUCUMBER (72 days)

2

Germ 6-10 days

Mild, delicious fruit is not a true cucumber but a melon that originated in Armenia. Light green fruits have darker striped ribs, curling into snakelike shapes. Grows 2-4’ long, but best picked at 15”. Produces on a long vine.  25 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.

Our favorite cucumber

I've grown a lot of varieties of cucumbers over the years. This is by far the best tasting variety we've ever grown and we've grown it every year for the past five years. Even though it is not a true cucumber it is crispier, sweeter, and just all-around better. In our cool-season climate this variety is not nearly as productive as others. I would say it produces about one fourth to one fifth the amount of a regular cucumber variety. We get two or three cucumbers per large vine per year. We have lots of space so we just plant lots of these to get enough for the family. My mom lives in a warmer climate and it is far more productive for her.
