Hmong Red Cucumber

The fruits are white to pale green, turning golden-orange as they ripen. A very productive and tasty variety that stays mild even when large. This heirloom was collected from a Hmong immigrant. Millions of the Hmong tribe live on the borders of Thailand, China, Burma, Laos and Vietnam, and are a very ancient people.

Review:

Being Hmong, We grew up with these. They are great on hit summer day. They are split in half, seeds scraped out and then scrape witha spoon into a bowl with sugar sprinkled on top. You can also do this when they are ripe and yellow but best before over riped

Review:

My boys and I planted 4 seeds late March. These started growing right away. Not many fruit flowers until late summer. I had surgery and no one really watered, weeded, or tended the garden at all. Only had one variety of tomato survive on its own (sunburst, little orange ones), the American Pineapple Melon, and this Hmong Cucumber. You do have to catch it just right when you pick it. Too soon or too late and it is really bitter. When you find the right size/color they are wonderful.

Review:

Hmong people prepare cucumbers as a refreshing treat. The older folks prefer over-ripe cucumbers like the one in the photo above because I guess as their taste buds get older they prefer a more sour taste with a slimier consistency. The younger green ones will be crunchier and watery in this recipe. But any cucumber with a wide enough girth can be used.1.Split the cucumber in half lengthwise2.De-seed if mature but optional if young as the young seeds are edible3.Use a thin (because it's sharper) metal spoon to scrape the cavity downwards in a fast lengthy motion as if you are scratching it, into a bowl you have set beneath the cucumber. Once you get to the skin stop. Repeat other half. There will be a fine mist spraying in all direction. The intention is to create a cucumber pulp.4.Add sugar to your liking and some ice cubes.(I like to add a little water because I like to drink the juice)

Review:

These were good. They grew w/o much effort, and I got many cucumbers. I grew them until they were about the same color as in the photo above.They got 12-15 inches in length, and about 3 inches in width.I had cucumbers in late July, until Mid-Late September.The largest amount of cucumbers we got/picked, was in August.The taste is mild, not bitter(unless picked too early..in a "yellow" stage..to us, anyway, they seemed bitter, or picked too late), but not quite "sweet", like some cucumbers can be.Very hardy cucumber plants.Also, from our experiences with Hmong Red Cucumbers....If you want to grow burpless cucumbers... these may not be what you are looking for(you can try them, as they are fairly mild).Also... the seeds are somewhat large...if that is of any issue.Overall... a good cucumber.
