Armenian Cucumber

We planted cucumbers for the first time this season. When I was browsing at my local nursery, I saw this Armenian cucumber variety and I was not sure how it was gonna taste but wanted to try it anyway. I am glad I did that.
Cucumber is a creeping vine and it needs a trellis for support. We used branches of a tree that we cut down. Also, it prefers full sun. I was so excited when I saw the first baby cucumber and was waiting to get a taste of it J
It was of course worth the wait, the fruit was so tender and had slight nutty flavor. The skin is light green in color and there is no need to peel it. We cut the cucumber into round slices and ate it just like that without adding anything. This is for sure going to be a regular in our backyard every year. Do give it a try in your next vegetable season either with seeds or saplings.


  1. My goodness..It was just a baby when I left
