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 an amazing garden staple! Whether you are adding them to salads, making soups and sauces, or just snacking on them right out of the garden, fresh cucumbers can’t be beat. While originally for East Asia they are grown around the world and have be grown as a delicacy from the Romans onwards.
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.
