These cute little round fruits are incredibly abundant. The cukes themselves are yellow and almost perfect little balls that make them unlike the cucumbers we're used to at the store. Harvest when they are about the size of a baseball for a bitterless fruit that really stands out. The vines themselves fit well in smaller gardens with a habit that doesn't spread and wander as much as some other cucumbers.

Cucumber: Cucumbers are a highly versatile and valuable addition to any garden. They can be used in a variety of dishes, from salads to soups, or simply enjoyed as a healthy snack straight from the garden. Although they were originally cultivated in East Asia, cucumbers are now grown globally and have been regarded as a delicacy since ancient Roman times.

Growing Tips: Cukes want warm, well drained soil and I usually recommend making a mound about 1 foot high and 18 inches across and planting two or three cukes in each mound in order to ensure the drainage needed. Use a good mulch to ensure there is consistent moisture in the soil.
