Crystal Apple Cucumber

         
 
17 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? Prolific, Easy to grow

What are the cons? Must keep up on pruning

Review:

I was worried at first that these were not going to produce much fruit but I was wrong! In the beginning I was fertilizing them and someone told me they were "fat and happy" and that I should stop fertilizing and see if that helped. It did. I have 4 plants and I went from having one or two cucumbers a week to 8 or more a day on average. (That's total not per plant) Next year I will probably only plant one or two of these. Also I grew these vertically and if I don't keep them pruned they try to over take the plants near them. Everyone who's tried has had the same opinion on taste. They taste just like a regular cucumber but the skin isn't as bitter. Also you can see 4 distinct seed chambers when you slice them which makes a nice presentation on a veggie plate. There's not a lot of flesh to them so if you like the seedy part of the cuke you'll love these.

What are the cons? very few female flowers-bitter

I grew this in my greenhouse and it produced a huge vine with a ton of male flowers but only set 3 fruits. They were very bitter, even when peeled.

Review:

I had not heard of crystal apple before last yr. This yr. I planted 4 seeds, everyone came up, strong vines, was very excited to see how many and how quickly the cucumber set on. As soon as they had fair size, I picked on and took a big bite, only to discover it was terribly bitter and I have no idea why. That is the only disappointment :( Not recommend these cucumbers unless I cold figure out why they are so bitter, I have lemon and Armenian cucumbers and are quite delicious , I'm stumped !!!

Review:

Personally I don't like eating cucumber much, but the Crystal Apple cucumber is delicious to me. It is sweet, mildly favour and crispy. The plant is extremely prolific and grow very well under high heat, up to 33, 34 degree Celcius. Trim off the extra leaves to ensure good air circulation. You will get good harvest all season long.
