Cucumber Crystal Lemon

Description

Cucumber seeds - Crystal Lemon

Crystal Lemon cucumbers may seem like an unusual variety. They are quite distinct round, pale lemon coloured fruits. Very vigorous and prolific. Considered more digestible by some connoisseurs as they have a mild, sweet taste. Best sown on an outdoor plot in full sun.
As well as being lemon coloured, they also grow to a similar size of lemons, rather than the traditional, long cucumber shape. They will be ready to harvest in approximately 8-11 weeks from sowing.
Half hardy annual

When to Sow Crystal Lemon Cucumber Seeds

April to May

Where to Sow

Sow seed on edge to prevent rotting. Sow into individual 9cm (3.5 inch pots)  at 2cm (1/2") deep. Keep under glass at a constant day and night temperature of 21°C. Germinate takes between 7-21 days.

What to do next

As soon as the crystal lemon seedlings have formed 3 true leaves, transplant into 15cm (6") pots. When the plants are about 10cm (4") tall, plant out outdoors once hardened off and all risk of frost has past. Grow up against netting or allow to trail along the ground. Can also be cropped underglass, planted into large pots or growbags . Provide some form of support and tie in stems as required.

Maturity

August to September

Handy Tip

Fruits can produce small black spines on the outside skin so are best peeled before eating.
