HISTORY:  Cucumbers originated high in the Himalayas, spreading from India to China & Japan.  Super long varieties were developed for the royalty.  India still retains many of the old varieties, still relatively unknown to the rest of the world.

Armenian Cucumber

By: on 19 June 2014
I grew these this year. Really nice flavor, not really juicy, butI didnt mind that. I had so many that I pickled them. The rippled skin on the armenian looks really nice in the jars (was tasty too) I would definitly give them a grow again
