Description

This Armenian cucumber is actually a variety of Muskmelon (Cucumis melo), and not a "true" cucumber (Cucumis sativus). The delicious fruits have no bitterness and are almost always used unpeeled because of its soft skin.


Package content: approx. 5 Armenian cucumber seeds
Sowing and cultivation

Although cucumbers can also be sown directly into the open field, indoor pre-culture is recommended. The seedlings are then hardened off and planted after the last frosts. Later, the plants can grow on a tendril or simply crawl on the ground. Plenty of water has a good effect on the fruit quality.
