Given to us in 2019 by Liam Gaffney, this seed originally comes from Alleppo, Syria. The plants have a climbing habit and so benefit from support as they grow. Best to wear gloves when pruning the plants – the leaves and stems have a prickliness characteristic of many cucurbits. Yellow flowers give way to lovely green, cylindrical, juicy fruits, which should be harvested when at their optimum 12cm length. This variety has high praise from Adam Alexander of Garden Organic, who says that of all the cucumbers he has ever grown this is the finest tasting.
