Latin Name: Cucumis anguria
Days to Maturity: 62
A cucumber relative that makes especially good pickles, and is also good fresh (it is eaten cooked as well). Very resistant to downy mildew, and tolerant of bacterial wilt. Pick the green and white fruits when 1-1.5” long, before any seed development starts, and they make good crisp pickles. Flavor is similar to cucumbers. Shaped like a tiny football, with lengthwise ridges. Use caution as these will self sow. We originally got this seedstock from Baker Creek. 115 seeds/g. Grown by Lyndsey Walker.
