Round cucumber

Round cucumber (Cucumis sativus 'Crystal Lemon' (Round Cucumber))

The first of the round cucumbers to ripen. Taste like normal cucumber but the rind has prickles on it like 5 o-clock shadow Terry says.

Fantastic. I've never seen these before! I was just reading your blog about them but you obviously did alright with them afterall! I grow an outdoor Cucumber called 'Swing' and I've done really well with them this year and last.I had 11 from one plant last year!

Yes, Homebird, they seem quite easy and good(particularly if you pick them quite small). They grow in a greenhouse or outside.
