(Cucumis melo)  Heirloom.  Also known as 'Yard Long Cucumber'.  Light-green, ribbed, cylindrical fruit 20-60cm.  Thin, soft skin, so no need for peeling.  Best results when grown on trellis.  Grows quickly.  This cucumber is actually a melon, but is grown & eaten like a cucumber.  50-89 days.  100 seeds

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
