Lemon Cucumber

60-70 days. This petite creature resembles a lemon with flattened ends and whitish-yellow skin; children love them! A novel heirloom, Lemon is worth waiting for: once it gets going, stand back! Yellow-green vines keep branching, producing 40 to 50 crispy fruits. Pick at about 2" long, before the skins darken. Check periodically for clever escapees hiding under the pale foliage. Lemon tastes faintly citrus: enjoy it fresh, or quickly sauteed, drizzled with crème fraîche or serve cool, garnished with Chives. Or munch right off the vine for a burst of summer flavor. (OP.) One packet of about 35 seeds
