The Dark Green Armenian cucumber, also known as the Yard-Long cucumber or Snake cucumber, is a unique and flavorful variety of cucumber that is popular in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines. Despite its name, it is actually a type of melon and not a true cucumber. This cucumber is long and slender, growing up to 3 feet in length, with a dark green skin that is thin and tender. The flesh is crisp, juicy, and mild in flavor, making it perfect for salads, pickling, or simply enjoying fresh.

Dark Green Armenian cucumbers are packed with nutrients, including vitamins A, C, and K, as well as potassium and fiber. They are low in calories and high in water content, making them a hydrating and refreshing snack. To grow these cucumbers, they require warm temperatures and plenty of sunlight. They can be grown in containers or in the ground, and they thrive in well-draining soil. Harvesting should be done when the cucumbers are young for the best flavor and texture. Whether you slice them up for a salad, pickle them for a tangy treat, or enjoy them on their own, Dark Green Armenian cucumbers are a delicious and nutritious addition to any meal.

How to Save Seeds


*Please note Armenian cucumbers are not true cucumbers and will in fact cross pollinate with members of the C. Melo family, such as melons so please keep this mind to avoid cross pollination if seed saving them.* Saving Armenian cucumber seeds is a simple process that allows you to preserve this unique variety for future planting. To begin, select a ripe Armenian cucumber from your garden. These cucumbers are typically ready for seed saving when they turn yellow. Next, cut the cucumber open and scoop out the seeds into a bowl. Rinse the seeds thoroughly to remove any pulp or residue. After rinsing, spread the seeds out on a paper towel or a plate to dry. Make sure to place them in a warm, well-ventilated area for about a week to ensure they are completely dry. Once dry, store the seeds in a cool, dark place in a paper envelope or a glass jar. Be sure to label the container with the date and the type of seeds to keep track of your collection. With these simple steps, you can successfully save Armenian cucumber seeds for future planting and enjoy a bountiful harvest year after year.
