Armenian Cucumber

Armenian Cucumber

Description

A true summer heirloom variety, these cucumbers are also known as Snake Melons, because botanically they are more closely related to a melon than a cucumber. They are pale green in color, ridged, thin-skinned, and slender with significant curved shape as they grow (thus the snake reference). The flesh is distinctively sweet with a mild, citric flavor.

Applications/Techniques

Armenian cucumbers are most commonly eaten raw as part of a composed summer salad but also may be used to make cucumber Raita to be used as a condiment to chicken or lamb. Armenian Cucumbers pair well with salmon, scallops, shrimp and smoked salmon-hot and cold smoked. Cucumbers compliment gin cocktails and other beverages
