Hmong Red Cucumber

The fruits are white to pale green, turning golden-orange as they ripen. A very productive and tasty variety that stays mild even when large. This heirloom was collected from a Hmong immigrant. Millions of the Hmong tribe live on the borders of Thailand, China, Burma, Laos and Vietnam, and are a very ancient people.

What are the pros? Big cucumbers, easy to grow

What are the cons? Hard to tell when ripe, 2 firm

Review:

These were easy to grow, came out nice and large, taste good. Only thing wrong was I didn't really know when to pick them so I picked them when they had a nice golden orange color but they were extremely firm. Taste good on the inside. Maybe I picked too soon.

Review:

I have finally found a cucumber that can hold up to the Texas summer heat, continue producing and not get bitter. I am pleasantly surprised at how easy this was to grow. The vine borers have left this plant alone and so have the leaf footed stink bugs. Long after my other cucumber varieties have stopped producing due to heat or gotten intolerably bitter these guys have exploded. The vine gets truly massive but it is so productive that I don't mind. They are so large one cucumber can make a quart or more of pickles. The skin is firm but tasty. I will be planting this every year.

Review:

Here in central FLorida so far, the Himella intractata (Noctuidae) in penultimate stage obliterated two plants of this vine. Other than that, still waiting for this to bear fruit (due to lack of bees).

Review:

Seeds started easily, and the plant is doing wonderfully in my hydroponic / aeroponic tower garden. This is my first time growing these, and first time using aeroponics. Wasn't sure about the heirlooms doing well without soil, but these are doing remarkably well. Tons of blossoms, lots of cucumbers coming. I am very anxious to see the end result! So far, so good!

Review:

Just got these seeds for the first time this year and was very excited to get them growing. As advertised these beauties do not disappoint. Easy to start, hardy and productive. Just harvested my first Red today and have many more on the plants with months of production ahead! Yes! As for the taste, amazing! Harvested my first ever Hmong Red (approx. 10 in. long 6 in wide with yellow with orange speckling) and had it for breakfast with a little sugar as recommended by the prior reviews. Wow is all I can say! Full of water the flesh starts to break down when sugar is added yet stays somewhat crunchy turning the Red into something totally it's own. I highly recommend this variety for its versatility and flavor.
