65 days. An ancient heirloom, introduced from Armenia into Italy as far back as the 1400s. It is a melon, but is used like a cucumber; picked small (18” or less), it is very mild and tasty, but the fruit can grow up to 3’ long! Easy to grow, and have good yields; it should be planted in more gardens.

Review:

This is my favorite cucumber. It is mild and when wrapped in plastic wrap it will keep over 2 weeks in the refrigerator even after being sliced. Especially good in Thai Cucumber salads. The fruit is long (about 21 feet) and skinny with practically no seeds. You can leave it on the vine for a very long time. It will just get fatter and sweeter, never bitter. Eventually it will get a little soft and smell a little like melon, but can still be used as a cucumber. Even though the yields are only moderate and it doesn't like weather over 100 degrees, the fruits are so long and keep so long, that I don't really need too many.

Review:

Well my 3 plants are taking over the garden. Best the plants grow like weeds and crawl everywhere. The first main stem crawls like a cure and are all male flowers. But each node grows a vertical stem with double flowers which make fruit . Holding up well in humid Texas heat. It’s july and they’re very green plugging away .

Review:

These are totally awesome. This is one of my favorite things to grow, period. I've only grown it last year, however (but I'm starting it again for this year, 2018—more plants). It seems earlier and larger than zucchini. Both the plant and the fruits grow super fast. They taste just like cucumbers. They quench the feeling of thirst very well. They're very edible even when large, although the skins get thicker (so you'll want to peel and maybe seed them when they're huge). I actually prefer the taste when large. They seem to enjoy heat/drought/clay/sun. I caged mine; so, that may have helped. It seems to climb more readily than most melons.

What are the pros? Huge, delicious, pretty

What are the cons? too big?

Review:

Huge yields, super easy, delicious, beautiful, and a great conversation piece. Doesn't get bitter in the heat. Basically the perfect vegetable if you have the space for it and really (really really really) like cucumbers.
