This heirloom cucumber dates back to the late 1800s. The vigorous vines produce masses of small, round, yellow fruit that look like lemons. This cucumber is crunchy, sweet and full of flavour, often served raw or pickled. The taste is milder and less bitter than most other cucumbers. Late to begin bearing fruit.
