60 days. Creamy, light-green fruits; very delicious flesh, crisp,and juicy. Sweet and mild; one of my favorite varieties. Fruit shaped like a potato, with skin turning brown as they ripen. One of our best varieties that is diseaseresistant and very hardy. Vines produce early and the yield is very heavy. A wonderful heirloom from India that has become our most asked-for cucumber.

What are the pros? Low maintenance

What are the cons? A bit thorny

Review:

Good experience with growing these cucumbers so far, they started producing in early July and have been consistently doing so. The fruits are juicy and taste great both raw and cooked in Indian dishes. I have a single plant and it produces tons of fruits using a small footprint.

What are the pros? easy to grow & never bitter

What are the cons? little black spines

Review:

These are my favorite cukes! They produce early for me, never get bitter, and do well no matter the conditions. I like em when they are small & lighter yellow. They are very tender & crunchy & sweet. They do have tiny black spines that have to be removed prior to eating but they aren't too prickly & it's easy to brush them off. When they ripen more and start turning orange-ish they get a tougher skin (but are still mild & delicious tasting) so I prefer to peel them at that stage. I've never eaten one that has fully ripened to brown but I bet they are still not bitter. You can water them erratically and they'll hold up to any type of weather and keep on pumping out cukes til frost. Dry heat, cooler weather, wet & rainy, nothing seems to phase these babies. I've grown them every year for the past 4-5 years and plan to always grow them.

What are the pros? great flavor, hardy, beautiful

What are the cons? nothing really

Review:

I started growing these in my own garden to deter thieves from grabbing all my cucumbers. Because of the color, folks thought they were rotten and left them alone. (Another grower even scolded me for letting so many cukes yellow on the vine. I just smiled.) They've since become a staple at our production and teaching gardens because they are delicious, crispy and juicy, and hold up very well against hot, dry weather, pests, and disease. They're great for working with kids or harvest staff because they are easy to see, and easy to judge when they are ripe, so there's less wasted harvest. They are great for fresh eating, and make beautiful pickles either alone, or in a jar with other color cucumbers. The color changes from subtle yellow to bright mustard to deepening orange-brown as they mature, and you can eat them at most of those stages. Once you give folks a taste of them, they'll keep asking for them at your farm stand. Very prolific, and also lovely for edible landscaping.

What are the pros? Germinated late January

What are the cons? None yet

Review:

I'll have to edit my review after they mature, but I want to report that they have germinated about 8 days after planting in Phoenix, AZ on January 18, 2018. They get about half a day of sun on my patio in a container. It's only January 24 now--too soon to say more at this point. They have roots and are starting to uncurl a first set of leaves.

What are the pros? Sweet and Easy To Pick

What are the cons? Don't trellis well

Review:

I've tried a couple dozen different varieties of cucumbers and this is by far my favorite. It's a super sweet, crunchy, juicy cucumber with no bitterness (flesh or skin). To be honest though, at least 70% of the varieties I've tried are similarly sweet/crunchy. What sets Poona Kheera apart is that it is so darn easy to pick! Unlike green cucumbers, Poona's color makes them "glow" against the green leaves. For me this means fewer cucumbers go bad because I miss them. I've tried trellising them and they don't seem to do as well as if you just let them grow on the ground. I don't pickle cucumbers, so I can't speak to that, but if you're looking for a fresh eater that's super easy to pick there is no better variety.
