Cucumber Seed

All of our seed is open pollinated, non-hybrid, non-GMO, untreated, natural heirloom seed.

Armenian (Cucumis melo)

(a.k.a. Snake Melon) One of the oldest heirlooms first introduced from Armenia into Italy in the 15th century. Although eaten as a cucumber, the Armenian Cucumber or Snake Melon as it was once called is actually botanically a melon (Cucumis melo); therefore, it can cross with cantaloupe or muskmelons but not with cucumbers. The long green, ridged fruit can grow to three feet long but should be eaten at 10-12 inch long. The long fruit tends to coil when grown on the ground similar in appearance to a snake. (75 days to maturity)

Kaiser Alexander

This extremely rare cucumber is named for the Russian Emperor Alexander and is originally from Russia. The most unusual trait of this cucumber is that when fully mature and past the eating stage, the skin is brown with white striations. It is truly beautiful! This heirloom also is one of the crunchiest, best tasting cucumbers I have grown and is best eaten when the green fruit are under 6 inches long. A real treasure! 60 days to maturity.
