Armenian Cucumber

         
 
17 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Cucumis melo) Light-green, mild-tasting, deeply ribbed fruits. The elongated fruits yield uniform, easily digestible, fluted slices. They are apt to twist and coil growing on the ground, but develop nice and straight when hanging from a trellis. Fruits reach 24 inches long, best harvested at about 18 inches. The classic Armenian “Cucumber” which is actually a melon genetically.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Susceptible to disease

Review:

Dude! These are awesome! They germinated without a problem and grew up my 10' tall tomato cage I made with a little help here and there. If you grow them vertically, they grow nice and straight. Pick them before they get too long and turn chubby, although they never turn bitter, at least for me they didn't. Just a little less flavorful at the bigger size. I pickled these alongside my Beit Alpha cucumbers (another good variety sold here) and they turned out just as yummy. I mulched my garden this year with a nice, thick layer of fresh oak wood chips to beat the nasty drought California is experiencing. It really made a huge difference. Hardly ever had to water my cucumbers, and we all know how much water cucumbers suck up. I will say they are moderately prolific. We were always eating them, every single day, but we were able to keep up with their productivity, in a household of 2 adults and 4 kiddos. Love these!

Review:

Grew this type on a trellis, and the fruit was so delicious, tender and no bitterness. No peeling. We loved them sliced with salt and pepper. Intend to grow again.

What are the pros? drought tolerant

What are the cons? spongey when too big

Review:

These make the BEST refrigerator pickles because unlike regular cucumbers they don't get soft. They will stay crunchy in the fridge for months. Good as fridge dills, bread & butters or spicy sweets.

Review:

As mentioned, this plant is prolific! It covered our raised bed here in hot Las Vegas & by mid-summer was attempting to dip its tendrils into the pool 15 feet away! It seemed to thrive in the heat, shaded its own soil wonderfully, & did not react to the few pests we had in early summer. We irrigate below the soil's surface & actually dialed back on watering for this beauty. We had previously tried the more familiar varieties of cukes, with no success - too hot It produced fabulous 10-14 inch fruits daily - we gave them away by the armloads! Everyone loved them & asked for more! No need to peel - skin is thin & never bitter. Even the larger fruits, once cut & de-seeded, are excellent to eat - just keep in a plastic bag so the "frost-free" refrigerator doesn't dehydrate them. I've kept them 10 days in this fashion. I also made refrigerator pickles with these - bread&butter style, as well as a cold-pack spicy dill & a classic kosher dill. The pickles were a hit & were incredibly crisp.

Review:

We grew these last year and can't wait to grow again. If you like cumbers, this is the melon for you! I recommend direct planting the seeds and just water and watch them grow! We planted several seeds on a wide trellis and had a big harvest. I love that they are never bitter, very crunchy and juicy. We ate these in salads, or cut into sticks for dipping into hummus. They are delicious with balsamic vinegar and other vinegars. I made several batches of pickled relish with these and it was a hit! We have decided to grow these exclusively this year and not do any cucumbers.
