50 days. Open pollinated. Heirloom. Also called Snake or Serpent melon. Botanically, this is a melon, but you would never know it. Vigorous vines produce loads of these light green, ribbed cucumbers that can grow to 3′ long. Best harvested at 12″ to 18″, though, when the skin is the most tender. But, still good eating when larger. Light green, ribbed fruits are firmer and less watery than most cucumbers, which make them perfect for cucumber salads and other recipes where you don’t want your cucumbers to get soggy and limp. They are firm and crisp, with a citrusy sweetness – unique and delicious! Grow on trellis for straight fruits. Can be grown on the ground, but the fruits will curve and twist.
