True Lemon Cucumber seeds - Organically Grown Untreated Heirloom - NO PEEL Fresh and Pickling cucumber with a sweet crisp flavor

Some times I think we all started eating cucumbers with bitter outer skins because that is what traveled well and could be displayed easily in supermarkets. However, when it comes to choices in the matter of not peeling a cucumber and having all the crisp sweet cucumber taste, this heirloom cucumbers shows us the way.

Organic True Lemon cucumbers do not exactly taste like lemons (just FYI), but they do have a light yellow skin, which gives them their name. There is no bitterness and no need to peel them and they have a mellow fresh cucumber taste. They are delicious pickled and fresh with their quirky spherical shape, but that makes them so interesting. Very enjoyable heirloom cucumber that has so many uses and is very tasty.

Packets: 15 & 25 seeds
