If you thought all cucumbers were green, think again! The Giant Russian cucumber will produce big, golden-skinned, fat fruits almost 20cm long. But it’s not the unusual nature of this variety that makes it so popular – instead, it’s the flavour. The crispy flesh has a sweetish flavour that has gardeners and gourmets coming back for more. The advantages don’t end there, however. This variety is known for its superior mildew resistance.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Start your seeds in spring. Direct sowing is the best solution, but if you want to get an early start, you can sow them in pots and plant them out after the last frost. Plant your seeds no more than 10mm deep, and keep the soil moist. Water deeply, and then let just the surface of the soil dry between waterings to keep them moist but not soggy.

    How to Harvest

    Harvest your cucumbers in the mornings when they are at their firmest and juiciest. Cut them from the vine to prevent breakage. Don’t let the seeds mature, even if you have more cucumbers than you need, as that tells the plant it can stop producing. Lebanese cucumbers are usually just right at 15-20cm long.
