Armenian Yard-Long Cucumber

         
 
33 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Cucumis melo) Light-green, mild-tasting, deeply ribbed fruit. The elongated fruit yields 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. Fruit reaches over 24 inches long, but best harvested at about 15 inches. The classic Armenian “cucumber” which is actually a melon genetically.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very prolific

What are the cons? Taste--there is none.

Review:

This melon has everything going for it-almost. It's very easy to grow. Beautiful vines, grew up a trellis very well. Very prolific, I had lots of melons. Can be eaten at almost any stage, though I did not like the really young ones at all. But the problem is the taste! They do not taste like a cucumber, period. The texture is wonderful, very crisp and juicy, but the taste is so disappointing because there just isn't any. I made pickles and dill relish with them. The pickles took on the taste of dill, and in the relish it took on the taste of the dill and onions, but no cucumber taste at all--because they are not cucumbers!! Forget them for dill pickles. I left several to become fully ripe and then they do not taste good as a melon either, barely a hint of sweet, just bland. Hubby says to him they tasted like the white in a watermelon rind. I have not figured out a satisfying reason to grow these. Sorry, I really wanted to like these, but just couldn't.

What are the pros? The tastes is good.

What are the cons? When they get mushy

Review:

I love growing Armanian. If the weather is good you will get a lot of Armanian. If not you may get a few. But they dont taste as good. But these are Awsome fried. I came upon them from a friend and have grown ever since. Make sure you vine upon a cattle fence they need a lot of vining room. And lots of sun. I start inside on heat mat and transplant. But there fragile so plant the container you started in. Bottom line is ill always plant even if I don't get an abundance of them or not. I have a tendacy to over water. So pay attention to water needs.

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Crispy and tasty

What are the cons? Grows too fast. haha

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.
