Cucumber Lemon Apple

The Lemon Cucumber is nearly round; the skin is smooth with yellow and green markings. Fruit grows from 6-7.5cm in diameter; flesh is tender and has a flavour surpassing all other cucumbers. Excellent for pickling, either green or ripe. For table use they should be used just as the fruits are turning yellow.

Cucumbers can be started in small peat pots then transplanted when weather is suitable. A trailing plant which will grow tendrils as it gets bigger. Lebanese cucumbers are best picked about 10 -12 cm (4 - 5 in) and eaten whole.

Grow in full sun. Grow up a trellis or framework to save space and keep the fruit clean. Needs ties to support it at first. Water regularly and fertilise to encourage growth.
