Cucumber Armenian Burpless HEIRLOOM Seeds

Cucumis melo var. flexuosus

Item #0021

65 days. Want to try something new in your garden? This is it! Armenian cucumber with handsome, light green, thin skin is nearly seedless, and more tolerant of heat than most cucumbers. Sometimes called serpent cucumber or yard long, it is actually a variety of melon! A long production period means harvesting right into fall.

This packet sows one 10-foot row or two 5-foot rows

Harvesting: Even though they can reach 3 feet long, Armenian cucumbers are best at under 18". Plants will stop producing if over-mature fruit stays on the vine. Cut the stem rather than pulling at the fruit to break off. Immediately immerse in cold water to disperse “field heat” to increase the quality and life of the picked fruit.
