Armenian Cucumber

         
 
31 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Cucumis melo) Light-green, mild-tasting, deeply ribbed fruits. The elongated fruits yield uniform, easily digestible, fluted slices. They are apt to twist and coil growing on the ground, but develop nice and straight when hanging from a trellis. Fruits reach 24 inches long, best harvested at about 18 inches. The classic Armenian “Cucumber” which is actually a melon genetically.

Review:

I planted lemon, suyo long, straight 8, and armenian cucumbers on a 60' wire panel along a line of depleted soil. These grew prolifically while the others languished all summer. They grew so fast and full, we had a hard time finding/picking them before they grew to a foot or more in length. No worries, though, because they're so crisp and delicious, even when they get large. We had the driest summer on record in decades, including a September full of 90 degree days and 0 precipitation. I watered when I remembered to--about once per week--and they just kept right on going until the first hard frost a few days ago. We'll be growing these every year!

Review:

My new favorite. Super easy to grow. I had them growing on a ladder but they could use something taller. Regardless it did very well. Attacked by aphid but still did really well. I love that you slice these and, since it's ribbed, you end up with cute little flower shaped slices. Mine grew to over two feet before I picked them and there was no dryness, Etc like there usually is when you leave cucumbers on the vine too long. They are a definite in my garden next year.

What are the pros? Delicious and prolific

What are the cons? taken over by mites badly

Review:

These are delicious and super prolific. Once they start setting fruits the fruits grow so fast it's amazing. They are juicy too! The plants got taken over by spider mites....and I have a few plants spread out through a 3.5 acre property. These are the ONLY cucumbers the mites attacked and they hit all of the plants even though they aren't next to each other. That being said, the plants still keep kicking out the fruits so they are pretty hardy. Big vines, lots of blooms. You will want a large trellis.

What are the pros? Grow fast and aggressive

What are the cons? It grows faster than I pick

Review:

We were introduced to these a few years ago and have had them in our organic garden ever since. They are drought and pest tolerant (except for bunnies. Dang bunnies) and make hands down the best pickles I have ever had. Pick them when the outsides are still ridged and they will keep longer on your counter than other varieties. Amazing volume of production with a cool, crisp texture and a slightly sweet taste.

What are the pros? Extremely heat tolerant, fast

What are the cons? Fruit can become too large

Review:

Introduced to these 10 years ago when I started growing in Phoenix. Was told "they are a must for summer here." My mentor was not wrong. Faithfully plant them every year and they will always be part of my garden here. These babies take the hottest, dryest days of Phoenix heat (110-120F in summer) and grow harder. They produce throughout the summer and just a couple plants is more than enough for me and the neighbors. Germination is always amazing and they will sprawl up and over just about anything; beware when planting near other plants. My 3 plants take up about 9 square feet on the ground and also climbed up and over 2 separate pallets I set upright as trellises. Keep in mind these are botanically a Musk melon so they will cross with your cantaloupes (dang things ruined some of my charentais seeds a couple years back).
