A cucumber of the special kind: this central Asian variety forms short, thick cucumbers, which are brown in colour. Juicy on the inside and very flavourful.
Sow from middle of April: Two seeds per 8cm pot or directly in the open from middle of May. Plant distances 50x50cm. Nutrient-rich soil, compost and layer of mulch beneficial. For higher efficiency plant lettuce, turnips or radish in between the young cucumber plants.
