Latin Name: Renee's lemon cucumbers


Protect seedlings from marauding birds with plastic berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded. Shallow-rooted cucumbers need adequate and consistent moisture to produce sweet tasting, nicely formed cucumbers. Avoid overly wet or dry periods for good quality fruits.


For best quality, sweet tasting fruits, be sure to pick young lemon cucumbers when they are still pale green with just a hint of lemon color on their skins. Bright yellow fruits are pretty but overmature and they will have tough skins and seeds. Enjoy the freshly picked, lemon-shaped cucumbers still warm from the sun as snacks and in salads. These old-fashioned cucumbers also make fine tasting pickles, both sweet and dill.
