Cucumber, Poona Kheera

91% of 100

60 days. This creamy, light green fruit has delicious, crisp, and juicy flesh. A sweet and mild Indian variety, it hails from the city of Poonah, or Pune, the cultural capital of the state of Maharashtra, India. There, it is popular in salads or juiced, and Pune street vendors sell these as a snack to beat the intense heat. They are simply divine when sliced and sprinkled with a bit of salt and pepper. Potato-shaped with yellow skin, it turns a handsome brown as it ripens. Disease resistant and very hardy, it is one of our best varieties. Vines produce early and the yield is very heavy.
