Metki Dark Green Serpent Melon (Armenian)

65 days. An ancient heirloom introduced from Armenia into Italy as far back as the 1400's. It is a melon but is used like a cucumber. Picked small (18 inches or less), it is very mild and tasty, but the fruits can grow to over 3 feet long! Easy to grow and good yields; it should be planted in more gardens.

What are the pros? Warm or even HOT weather

What are the cons? Cold wet weather

Review:

I was never able to get these to produce in Oregon because the summers aren't warm enough long enough for them to mature fruit. However, in Phoenix AZ, they thrive and produce in the warm weather before and after summer, and will even survive the entire summer. It is too hot for them to set fruit in July and August (daytime highs are 105-113, day after day), but by the end of September the weather has cooled and they will start to produce again. I've grow many different cucumbers here in the desert, and these are by far the best growing and best producing.

Delicious cucumber alternative

What are the pros? Easy to grow, non bitter

What are the cons? Skin needs peeling

Review:

This "melon" is grown as a cucumber alternative. In my hot climate the flavor far surpasses cucumbers. They don't get bitter and the vines hold up to the heat. The fruits are fuzzy, fairly thick with a dark green skin. They like to climb and need the height for the long fruits. While you can let them grow longer I prefer to pick them at under a foot long. The skin can be a bit tough so you may want to peel them before eating. If you've grown the Armenian Cucumber/Melon this is very similar.

Review:

I'm still in my growing season and this is my first year growing them. They are lots of fun. Taste just like a cucumber, I cut our first one at 18" and it was perfect for sushi night! I have 5 on the vine now and it's still going crazy and we have already hit 100 degree weather! Great fruit and vine! Super fun for the kids. Going to let one grow super big for fun! A must!

What are the pros? Good Taste

What are the cons? Slow to grow

Review:

I grew this melon for the first time Summer of 2015. I believe I allow the plants to become root bound prior to planting in garden. I only got 1 fruit per plant. The fruit only grow to approx. 1 foot long. Taste like a cucumber, not a melon taste at all, but taste very good. I will plant again. I pickled some of the melons in a sweet-pickle brim and they were delicious.
