Kaiser Alexander Emperor Cucumbers


Very rare and delicious cucumber.  We were gifted this seed at the OSA conference in 2018 and have been growing it ever since.  It is a great pickling cucumber that can be harvested at 4-6″, however this is not the surprise that we love so much.  Let this fruit mature until the flesh is yellow and brown and harvest to discover a delightful white flesh inside that tastes like a mix between cucumber and melon.  This firm and sweet fleshed cucumber is said to originate with the Kaiser of Russia, Alexander, who delighted in it’s flavour (mix between cucumber and melon) and texture.

We can’t get enough of it!
