Cucumber, Metki Dark Green Serpent

90% of 100

65 days. This bitter-free, thinskinned delicacy is botanically a melon, but it possesses all of the best qualities of the cucumber. An ancient heirloom from Armenia, the long, slender fruit is best harvested at 12-18 inches; however it can grow much longer if left on the vine. Its mild, sweet flavor, coupled with its thin, mild skin makes it a delectable treat raw, pickled or even cooked!
