Organic Poona Kheera Cucumber - A favorite in our trials! A specialty variety from India with great flavor, quality and field resistance to disease compared to similar varieties. Cucumbers are light yellow-green when young and begin turning russet-brown at full maturity. Traditionally sold at light-green stage, but we find the flavor is best when harvested just as browning begins; then skin has a sugary sweet flavor and flesh is juicy and crisp. Heavy producer. Climbs easily on trellis to 5-6’.(Cucumis sativus)
Days to maturity:50 days
Does well in containers 5 gallon and up (the key to growing in containers is simple, regular watering and feeding). Northern zones direct sow mid June. Can be started earlier indoors, be especially careful with the roots when transplanting. Stake string up or trellis, will also grow well without support. Pick fruit regularly to increase production. One of the most unusual treats, is emerging as possibly the best tasting cucumber of all in many opinions. Good eating even when they look over-ripe. Gets rave reviews on taste and productivity.
