Unique brown cucumber is a wonderful heirloom variety discovered in India. The potato-shaped fruits start out a creamy pale green, with the skin turning a rich russet brown as they ripen. Delicious flesh is crisp, juicy, sweet, and mild. Strong, hardy, disease resistant vines produce early and prolifically. 60 days from transplant. Care: Space 2-3′ apart in all directions. Cukes need heat and well-drained soil: plant in full sun in raised beds or hills.
