Product Overview

Cucumis melo var. flexuosus

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

Variety Info

18"–36" long, 1"–4" wide, light green skin with paler green, longitudinal furrows; most flavorful and tender when picked between 12" and 18" long.

Sowing Inside

2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Cucumbers are sensitive to root disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 70°–90°F.
