Item Details

This rust- and drought-resistant, highly productive variety is a popular market cucumber in Australia, where it is also known as Lemon or Garden Lemon cucumber due to its lemon-like appearance when ripe and its slightly citrusy flavor. Easy to digest and well-suited for pickling and fresh eating, it was listed in the 1894 catalog of Samuel Wilson of Mechanicsville, Pennsylvania. 58-70 days. ±700 seeds/oz.

Super productive

by

Super productive and easy to grow. I can't tell that they taste like lemon at all, but they're really cute.

Novelty Cucumber

5 Stars for productivity, 3 stars for flavor (I don't taste the citrus).
I found them susceptible to fungus. Probably will not grow again in favor of some more resistant varieties.
