Hmong Red Cucumber

The fruit is white to pale green, turning golden-orange as it ripens. 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? The flavour! The size!

What are the cons? It doesn't grow in winter time

Review:

I start eating them as soon as they're a few inches long, right until frost overtakes my greenhouse. They're so good I won't share them with visitors, unlike my "ordinary" green ones. In fact, I'll stop planting boring green cucumbers as soon as I run out of seeds, and concentrate my attention on the colourful ones like the Hmong, the Sikkim, the Chinese yellow...

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.

What are the pros? flavor, productive

What are the cons? none

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.

What are the pros? Grows

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).

What are the pros? Heat resistant-very productive

What are the cons? None

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!
