Cucumber – Richmond Green Apple



Richmond Green Apple Cucumber, an uncommon Australian heirloom, was a standout in our 2020 trials. The refreshing lime-green fruits are bitter-free, excellent eaten right off the vine or sliced up into salads. We found that they are similar to lemon cucumbers in shape and flavor, but with slightly larger fruits and more vigorous plants. A week or two later to get going than our other cucumbers, but well worth the wait!
