From Tatiana's TOMATOBase
- Very prolific and early cucumber of unusual color. It starts out creamy white/green and turns golden russet brown at ripened stage or in storage. The flesh is crisp, juicy and sweet, it does not turn bitter. It became a favorite of many gardeners in North America after this cucumber was introduced to the American market. Skin is a bit tough, so it is best peeled. The earliest cucumber to set fruit in our cool spring 2012.
Year grown: 2012
- 50-60 days. Cream/light green fruits that turn yellowish to light russet brown as they ripen. Usually an elongated potato shape, although they are sometimes narrower and longer for me in hot weather. Delicious, tender and mild, a favorite. High yields, does well here in Texas.
Year: 2004, and every year since then
Location: Bastrop, Texas
- An heirloom variety from India.
