60 days. Creamy, light-green fruits; very delicious flesh, crisp,and juicy. Sweet and mild; one of my favorite varieties. Fruit shaped like a potato, with skin turning brown as they ripen. One of our best varieties that is diseaseresistant and very hardy. Vines produce early and the yield is very heavy. A wonderful heirloom from India that has become our most asked-for cucumber.

What are the pros? Sweet and Easy To Pick

What are the cons? Don't trellis well

Review:

I've tried a couple dozen different varieties of cucumbers and this is by far my favorite. It's a super sweet, crunchy, juicy cucumber with no bitterness (flesh or skin). To be honest though, at least 70% of the varieties I've tried are similarly sweet/crunchy. What sets Poona Kheera apart is that it is so darn easy to pick! Unlike green cucumbers, Poona's color makes them "glow" against the green leaves. For me this means fewer cucumbers go bad because I miss them. I've tried trellising them and they don't seem to do as well as if you just let them grow on the ground. I don't pickle cucumbers, so I can't speak to that, but if you're looking for a fresh eater that's super easy to pick there is no better variety.

What are the pros? prolific, sweet & crisp flavor

What are the cons? bitter skin

Review:

The cukes were sweet, crunchy & crisp, but the peel was extremely bitter and it wasn't unusual for the cucumbers to be bitter at one end. I learned to slice the end off & sample it before I added the cucumber to anything. The taste was so good I'm going to grow them again regardless.

What are the pros? Very prolific and easy to grow

What are the cons? Germination rate

Review:

This is a awesome cucumber to grow No matter how hot it gets these never go bitter and you will get tons if they are cared for correctly the only down side is the germination rate I did not have the best germination on these I planted about 8 seeds and only 4 sprouted But man that was more than enough I even made a video on them check them out at http://www.youtube.com/user/Thesmalltowngardener?feature=mhee

Review:

I grew these in a container on my balcony and ended up with five or six fruit from one plant. As it's a closed balcony, I had to hand pollinate them, which I think hurt the yield since some of the female flowers and unfertilized fruit shriveled before they could set. Even with that, the fruit that did set was small even though I waited until they were brown before picking. Eaten the same day they were crispy and fresh with a slight hint of honey-like flavor in the aftertaste. Very nice indeed! I might keep a couple more seedlings next year to have more fruit, as the cukes were so tiny.

Review:

My little cucumbers are growing so fast! I'm super happy with the seedlings. Germination rates high. I'm looking forward to see what the season ahead brings in terms of fruit.
