(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.

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
