ucumber, Striped Armenian

Cucumis melo var. Flexuosus


55 Days to Harvest

Full Sun

Plant 12” apart in rows 5’-6’ apart


Striped Armenian is a very old heirloom variety migrating from Armenia to Italy in the 15th century. Technically a melon, but it tastes and looks more like a cucumber, excelling in salads, stir fries, and for munching. The fruit naturally grows in a coil, and will grow straighter if trellised or staked. The fruits can grow up to 30” long, but taste best when picked 8”-18”. They prefer well drained soils, and benefit from raised beds and plastic mulch or landscape fabric.
