Cucumber 'Lebanese' - 10 Seeds

Lebanese cucumbers are long and cylindrical in shape with dark green skin, white flesh and a crisp texture. They are smaller, and have smoother skin and a sweeter flavour than the common cucumber.

Many people who do not like cucumber find that they enjoy this variety; small, slender, thin-skinned, burpless green fruits with crisp, mild flesh and a small seed cavity. A smooth, green cucumber best trained on a trellis; fruits are ideal for fresh slicing.

This plant produces an abundance of 25-30 cm long cucumbers that have a skin so thin that it does not require peeling. This stores very well and is great for packing just to munch on.
