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? Delicious Cucumber flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have grown these two years in a row now. I love them and so do my customers. They end up fighting over them if more than one customers sees them on the table. These are beautiful, flashy and delicious with never a hint of bitterness. One of our all time favorites! I'm going to grow more of them this year.

What are the pros? easy to grow, fast maturity,

What are the cons? none

Review:

Three plants grew quickly and enough fruit to give away. It's true over three feet long and we made pickles from the fruit and also gave the abundance to my chickens who LOVED this treat.

Too far north to grow these
Easy to Grow 2.5
EarlyMaturity 2.0
 

What are the pros? great price

What are the cons? Not too many fruits

Review:

I think we may be too far north to grow these. August was too cold for cukes too. Temperatures were often 70-85 degrees. I think I will try something else. I did get one fruit.

Just ok...

What are the pros? Interesting looking

What are the cons? Low producer, not flavorful.

Review:

I grew this melon on the quest for a good cucumber. From the reviews it looked like this might be what I was looking for. I think I got maybe three melons off of it... They didn't have any flavor and were not good as cucumbers. Maybe we are too far north for this melon to be successful. I have found the Suyo Long cucumber and that is exactly what I was looking for: Good flavor, burpless, good producer.

Crispiest pickles ever

EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros?

What are the cons?

Review:

I cut these into spears and made refrigerator pickles (dill) . They still crunch when its time to plant the next year's crop. Tasty in salads or just for snacking. Crisp and tender. Fun to watch them grow on trellis.
