PAINTED SERPENT CUCUMBER (72 days)

1

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.
