Persian Cucumber
Cucumis melo flexuosus
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
(Armenian striped cucumber; Snake melon) This striped snake-like Persian delicacy is actually a melon, not a true cucumber. But the thin skinned melons can be chopped and used just like cucumbers. Excellent tossed in salads or just eaten raw. Sweet and refreshing with a crunchy texture. Ideal for pickling too. Popular traditional vegetable throughout the Persian Gulf and north to Armenia. Thrives in fertile, well-drained soil in a warm sunny spot. Grows best when trained to climb a vertical structure.
