Crystal Apple Cucumber

         
 
9 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

Small 3” oval fruit are a bright, creamy white, about the size of a small apple; sweet, mild and very tender. This variety has become almost extinct in America after being introduced here from Australia around the year 1930 from Arthur Yates and Co. But this type of cucumber is likely to have originated in China. The small fruit are so tender you can eat them skin and all.

What are the pros? very heavy producer

What are the cons? bitter. takes awhile produce

Review:

It may take a couple more weeks for these guys to start producing, but once they get going, they cannot be picked fast enough! Off of 2 plants, we got dozens and dozens of cukes! Only downside is they can be pretty bitter. But I have heard there are ways to remedy this. I say give 'em a shot!

What are the pros? Very yummy flavor

What are the cons? Low producer

Review:

Yummy. Mild flavor with slightly citrus taste. Took a while to germinate, and didn't produce much, but withstood the harsh unpredictable Houston, TX weather. Ants and a few pests seemed to be attracted to it, but didn't destroy it.

What are the pros? taste

What are the cons? slow initial growth

Review:

LOVED this one. It took a while to get it started, but once it started to produce (about mid July - September and still going into October), we've been enjoying these. MUST slice off the stem end and RUB in circular motion until it starts to froth and then trim off the next slice to REMOVE BITTERNESS = whats left is juicy, sweet, delectable with a bit of sea salt...it's a morning drinker and like plenty of water we've been harvesting it on and off in the early summer time and just finished harvesting about 35 pounds now in September!!! (That's after planting in 2 very small sections of our garden (each about 2 X 1 foot sections)it vines very nicely, so if you plant it, set up a vining wall for it to grow onto, it will also spread like any cucumber/squashy type plant.

Review:

I've only had a single cucumber develop and grow on my vines. Still I was happily anticipating tasting it. At first, it seemed to taste okay but after chewing it, a very unpleasant bitter after taste, developed and lingered in my mouth. What a disappointment! I love trying unusual varieties and It is interesting that others had a different, better experience, but I won't grow these again.

Review:

About a month ago a tornado came through our town and wiped out all of our gardens and buildings, except this amazing cucumber. I like the flavor, nothing to spectacular in the flavor dept, although wanting to eat fresh cucumbers, I was amazed that they produced after hail, high winds, drought and a tornado. I'm impressed, very impressed, espceially for something in the melon family. I will grow every year! Thanks for offering this little pretty beaut!
