Very long fruit with dark green and pale green stripes and excellent flavor; a rare Armenian-type cucumber that is actually a melon; very unique and is a great selling item at farmers' markets everywhere.

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Powdery mildew easily

Review:

This seed has excellent germination, grows quickly and tastes delicious however it will get mildew very easily. Having grown it outside and indoors I noticed the mildew both times. The plant seems generally unaffected by this and continues to produce.

Review:

I'm here today to order more of these. Last year I planted these with assorted other melons and squashes. We had an extremely wet spring followed immediately by a summer drought (one week everything was soaking then didn't rain for two months). The other melons and the squash all succumbed to either squash vine borers or powdery mildew. The snake melon didn't so much as blink at these challenges. As long as there was water the one plant produced as many large sweet 'cucumbers' as my family could eat and had some left for pickling. When I all but stopped watering in the late summer it continued to bloom and be covered in bees every until the fall rains arrived. It made such a beautiful flowering ground cover that this year I'm growing it again in my front yard garden.

Review:

I have grown these for two years now and this year they will get a more prominent place in my garden. They are about the most beautiful and best tasting cucumber I've ever grown. My customers go crazy and even fight over who is going to buy them! There is no need to peel the very thin skin and seeds are almost non-existent. They are a beautiful addition to any salad!

Review:

I actually received this cuke from someone who got the seeds from Mexico as I live close to Mexicali. I grew it and looked it up on the internet to identify what it was. Tastes amazing, produced like crazy, took over a huge area, just let em run, up a trellis too, if it is protected from wind and well watered. I will grow these always from now on. I live in zone 9b or 10a in Imperial County, CA, and I planted them about March as seedlings started inside. I am going to try this Fall, too. I have only eaten them raw and I love them more than potato chips!

Review:

I grew this one last year - What a producer!!! I picked them big and picked them small; they were never bitter!!! We live in central Missouri and had Cucumbers until October (1st frost). These cukes make Great pickle relish, too. This is a new staple for our garden.
