60 days. OP. This unusual cucumber from India starts out a creamy yellow color when it is approximately 4" long. As it matures it turns a russet brown and looks more like a potato than the cucumbers we are used to in this country. They are delicious at any stage, remaining crisp, sweet, juicy, and bitter free. They can be eaten fresh or used in stir fries, chutneys, and pickles. The vines are vigorous and disease resistant, and pump out lots of fruits. Its just one that you have to try.
Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.
Our plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are 4 to 10 inches tall and are ready to be planted out in your garden.
We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.
We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March into June, according to your location or your request.

We are currently accepting orders for the 2015 season. All of our plants are now available to order.
