Cucumis sativus

Hybrid. The plants produce elongated fruit with a dark green and slightly spiky skin. The skin is tough and should be peeled off before eating, but don’t let this put you off – with the skin is gone, the flesh is superbly crunchy and distinctively sweet, making the effort of peeling worthwhile.

The plants produce both male and female flowers, so the fruit should be picked young ­­– when they are about 30 to 35cm long and the seeds still small, tender and unobtrusive. If the fruit are allowed to grow larger the seeds inside will mature and become tough.

We grow our plants indoors, where they are trained to grow upwards. However, this variety can also be grown outdoors, where the vines can be allowed to run along the ground.

Approx. Number of seeds per pack: 15
