Description

True Lemon Cucumber - A New Love in Your Garden

Lemon-like in color, size and shape, the True Lemon Cucumber's white flesh is sweet with a superb crunch. They start producing a little later than other cucumbers, but keep producing after everything else has quit. Neither flesh nor skin is bitter and it is a versatile cucumber. Very popular with chefs and gardeners who know them.

Introduced from Australian markets in Samuel Wilson's 1894 catalog (Mechanicsburg, PA).

History

Cucumbers are thought to have originated in India at the foot of the Himalayas, and cultivated in western Asia for 3,000 years. Well known by the ancient Greeks and Romans, introduced to China in the 2nd century BC. Columbus brought cucumbers to the New World in 1494.

Uses

The perfect size for snacking, salads or sandwiches. 

Growing Tip

Cucumbers need to be continuously harvested to keep up production. If the fruits yellow on the vine the plant will stop producing altogether, To harvest twist them off the vine or snip them with clippers to make sure you do not damage the vines.

    Personal- sized cucumbers

    As the description says, they were free of bitterness and scrambled up my trellis to make for easy picking. Still produced after some other cucumbers were pooped out.
