Garden Saturday

Every Saturday, I will post about my husband's vegetable garden.

He is at 115 lbs of produce.

Today we are featuring the Armenian cucumber. Brent picked one this was almost 7 lbs. See the picture.

The Armenian cucumber grows approximately 30 to 36 inches long. It grows equally well on the ground or on a trellis. Actually a melon with a taste like a cucumber-it is burpless and easy to digest. Armenian cucumber plants prefer to grow in full sun for most of the day. The fruit is most flavorful when it is 12-15 inches long. Pickled Armenian cucumber is sold in middle-eastern markets as "Pickled Wild Cucumber".[1]
