Cucumis melo

30 seeds/pack | 60-70 days | Heirloom

This popular burpless variety thrives in heat. The fruits are long, 18-36 inches and large, 3-4 inches in diameter. Sliced with a dash of vinegar and salt, this turns into one of our favorite summertime snacks. The flavor is cooling and sweet. Be careful when seed saving since Armenian cucumbers are botanically the same species as cantaloupe and will cross pollinate.

Cucumis sativus

30 seeds/pack  | 65-70 days  | Heirloom

This favorite is round with yellow skin, hence its namesake. With non-bitter skin, the flesh is crunchy and slightly sweet. Good enough to eat like an apple directly from the garden or slice for salads. The vines can be trellised or allowed to sprawl. Look for new fruits frequently as they often hide under leaves and it's not uncommon to find old fat ones that have escaped notice.

This burpless variety should agree with all cucumber lovers. The thin smooth skin does not need to be peeled. Very good slicer for salads, sandwiches, etc. This is one of our favorite fresh eating varieties. Great right out in the garden eaten like an apple. Picked young it is also a good pickle variety.

Cucumis sativus

Pickle enthusiasts loved this cucumber at the turn of the 20th century and it is just as good 100 years later. Small, firm, crisp, deep green and sweet. Pick when gherkins are 3-5 inches and drop in pickling brine. Selected by J.C. Snow and listed by Vaughan Seed House of Chicago in 1905. We love to use traditional salt brines with this variety.

Cucumis sativus

30 seeds/pack | 60 days  |  Heirloom

This long Asian variety grows to 15 inches and more. The fruits curl into interesting shapes with a mild and pleasant flavor that is not bitter. We found it to grow best when trellised so the fruits can hang and let gravity straighten them out a bit!

Cucumis anguria

30 seeds/pack   | 60-65 days  | Heirloom

These golf ball-sized cucumbers are a mouthful! Borne on rampant vines, this small gherkin was introduced from Jamaica in 1793. Although traditionally used for pickling, we thought these were great as a raw garden snack. Juicy, true cucumber flavor. Pick them young for best eating. As they age, the Burrs become spikier.
