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.

Easy to Grow 5.0

What are the pros? grows everywhere in the u.s

What are the cons? Can overmature and rot

Review:

These cucumbers were some of my favorite things to eat when growing up. My dad use to plant tons of these and every year, just when they start fruiting and are still small, they taste the absolute best. If you wait longer, they grow bigger but the seeds harden and won't be as good for snacking. Nevertheless, you can use them to make spicy cucumber salad! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diMoBvFfXKA

Great large cucumbers
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Big, mild, dogs love them

What are the cons? A little longer to mature

Review:

Great cucumber. Survived well in a hot year, cool year, lots or rain and dry conditions. Grows to be huge. Nice orange/red color. I don't eat them much myself (I'm just not huge cucumber fan). I have and they are mild and the skin easy to eat whether they are small or big. I've made cucumber drink with them. Maybe want to try and make some massive pickle spears yet. But even though they taste good, I grow cucumbers for my dogs and chickens - and I get big bang for my buck with these as they are large. I would say they gave me a moderate amount of fruit. Last year was warmer and they matured earlier than this year which was cooler. They germnated well. I start some outside but mostly I transplant everything to get a jump on the season. Pleasantly surprised with these and will grow them every year.

Great Pickling Cucumber
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Great for pickling

What are the cons? Susceptible to vine borer

Review:

Very vigorous growers. These cucumbers are great for pickling, picked when they are mostly yellow. They are very large and firm, and I have never experienced any kind of bitterness at all at any stage. The only problems I had, was with the vine borers making holes in the fruit, they steamed to prefer this variety and my lemon cukes over the other two varieties I grew. These cucumbers taste good at almost any stage and don't get sour for a long time. Great for someone who can't get out into the garden to pick often.

my all time favourite
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

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.
