Cucumbers · Painted Serpent


Out of stock


Also known as Armenian Cucumber or Snake Melon, William Woys Weaver says “this is one of the oldest of our heirlooms, yet one of the most neglected by our gardeners,” oft exhibited but seldom eaten. Yet its flavor surpasses that of cucumbers, excelling in salads and stir fries without bitterness or burps. Slender slightly fuzzy flexuous fruits delicately coil like a serpent with alternate light and dark green stripes.
