The Lemon Cucumber

This is the first time I have grown this variety of cucumber. As it matures the skin turns a bright yellow and looks exactly like a lemon. From the first harvest, I made pickled cucumber by slicing it thinly, placing it in sterilized jars and pouring over a vinegar sugar mix with some added dill seeds. I used it after a few days and will have to make more as it is delicious on salad sandwiches.

  1. Ian,
    These are our favorite cucumbers! They taste much better than green skinned cukes. WE pickled them a few years ago, yummy!
