White Serpent Melon- Armenian Cucumber

Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (heirloom)
Very long fruit with dark green and pale green stripes, excellent flavor, a rare Armenian-type cucumber that is actually a melon, very unique and is a great selling item at farmers’ markets everywhere. This is hard to find, but one of the best-regarded slicing cucumbers. It's crisp, thin-skinned, and mild-flavored, and it has soft seeds. Like the English cucumber, it doesn't need to be peeled or seeded.
