Crystal Apple Cucumber

         
 
15 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.

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.

Review:

Love this cucumber. Was easy to grow for a first time gardener. It was very prolific, as long as you pick it they seem to keep coming. The family loved it. The kids next door loved it. What more can you ask for? Like most cucumbers though, it did eventually succumb to powdery mildew.

What are the pros? Heavy producer

What are the cons? Skin gets very tough w/size

Review:

Very fun cucumber to grow. Children would love it. Produces very well if picked regularly. We have harvested well over 50 from just a few plants. Easy to start, lasts well into Autumn's cool temperatures. Must be picked early. Fruit larger than 3" develop thick skins that are terribly difficult to chew and they also have many many seeds. A plus with the seeds is that you can save them for the following year.
